A rare Snow Leopard bug has picked up steam, or at least publicity, over the past few days and it sure is a doozy. According to reports, the bug shows itself when a Leopard user with an enabled guest account subsequently upgrades to Snow Leopard. Upon rebooting, many of these users are logged in as a guest, and soon find that all of their data has been completely erased. Yikes! This is a disastrous bug in the most extreme sense of the word, with the latest news being that Apple is officially aware of the problem and is already working on a fix.
“We are aware of the issue, which occurs only in extremely rare cases, and we are working on a fix”, an Apple representative said earlier today.
