This thing ha a terrible security flaw.

Run System Optimizer X and authenticate when it asks you to. Then run the repair permissions thing. Open up a terminal and run 'ps -a'. Notice your password appears in plain text. Anyone on the system can run the ps command and also see your password. This needs to be fixed.
