Re: Ubuntu 11.10 now unsecure by default

Let's not overreact. We're talking about a guest account only on dekstop
systems, for local login only, and perfectly visible to the user. The only
problem I see here is not having a simple GUI way to disable the guest
login for a non tech-savvy user, but no more. (Or am I missing something
here?)

Are there any other services this may effect?

The question could also be how many features like this are (will be?)
silently enabled by default on new Ubuntu systems.

Ubuntu is clearly no more recommended for business use. End users will
have to become security experts to avoid teenager's attacks ... shameful
