 Secure your Mac

"OS X is a pretty secure operating system right out of the box. However, it has two major shortcomings. The first flaw is that by default the machine automatically logs in as an administrator. This means that even if you have your screen saver password protected, somebody could reboot your machine and gain full access. To fix this problem, open up System Preferences, click on the Security pane, and turn off automatic login."
