Nice find. Most people really shouldn┬╣t be using AFP. I know that Classic
MacOS machines store the passwords on disk using a simple XOR cipher. I
would assume that they also transmit the password using the same cipher.
SecureMac.com has a article on this if anyone is interested.

Vendor Response:


After some discussion with someone on Apple's product security team it
turns out that I was responsible for the lack of response - my original
notice went to Apple corporate security rather than product security
and apparently was never forwarded on. In contrast, a member of the
product security team responded to my last email shortly after the
advisory was released.
