comment Application eating ~840,000,000% of my CPU
When this happens, what does the top -u terminal command show? How about the output of loadavg ?

comment Application eating ~840,000,000% of my CPU
100% CPU usage is 100% of one core. So on a Mac Pro, 1200% means 12 cores at 100% usage. Note that a hyper threaded core can go to 200% if both threads are fully utilized. I am reasonably sure that the images shown in the screen captures here are a bug.

comment Are Macs vulnerable to the Bash shellshock bug?
These are irrelevant. Either of these, by their very nature, grant users access to run commands on the system, so if you have them enabled then it is your intention to allow users to run commands. The Shellshock bug is a means for users whom you didn't intend to be able to run commands to be able to do so, E.G. a user of the web server you run. So, your answer should say "Disable Web Sharing" (but that's just one thing to check)

comment Are Macs vulnerable to the Bash shellshock bug?
@JeffBurdges: regarding "Installation scripts usually use bash, creating privilege escalation risks", why would a malicious installation script need to use this exploit? If the user is installing a malicious installation script (a trojan horse) then the code wouldn't need to invoke this bug, it gets root anyway.

comment Does my son know I'm using Find my iPhone when I log on?
@badweasel the question was "Does my son know I'm using Find My iPhone" and this answer is saying "he might be able to if he notices that the location services are active and he finds that unusual". It clearly explains that there's no specific alert for the Find my iPhone feature. I can't see how this doesn't answer the question.
