"It doesn't work and can be defeated."

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Ok,

I had this running on my Powerbook, but upgraded to 10.3.7 and now it doesn't work. Furthermore, after doing research, all you have to do in order to defeat this is to change the memory configuration on the computer, and *then* zap the PRAM. Thanks alot. Is there anything that can actually secure my machine short of having to lock it up physically?

Sheesh!

What's new in version 1.0.2
The Open Firmware Password application allows you to enable security features in Open Firmware. You can use it to prevent others from starting your computer using a CD or other disk with an operating system on it. You can use Firmware password protection to enhance access security to your computer. When you set a Firmware password, it prevents others from starting up the computer from a volume other than the one you have chosen as the startup disk (chosen in the Startup Disk preference panel within the System Preferences.) Once security is enabled, you cannot startup from other devices such as an external FireWire disk, a CD-ROM drive, or another partition or disk inside the computer.
