Dumb bug of the week: Apple's macOS reveals your encrypted drive's password in the hint box

Last time I saw passwords in plain text on the screen it was apple doing it - deliberately.

It was about 1996 , and some kind of apple server we used to have used to proudly display the name and password or people as they logged in on a little LCD screen on the top of its tower.
