The Verge reports that Apple has fixed the critical FileVault password bug in OS X 10.7.4:
Apple just released OS X Lion 10.7.4, which fixes a nasty bug that exposed FileVault passwords in plain text if Snow Leopard users upgraded to Lion but kept using their legacy FileVault settings. (FileVault 2 in Lion never had a problem, so if you bought a new Lion machine you’re in the clear.)
Let us know how it goes.
