Okay, there's been a deluge of people telling me how to break C2
security when it's installed out of the box. You can stop now.
I unfortunately made the (obviously incorrect) assumption that
everyone who even THOUGHT the words "C2" also thought
"100564-07 C2 Jumbo patch". If you didn't, you are a CERTified
imbecile and deserve to have your system destroyed.
Naturally, I don't speak for Sun when I say that.
