[ubuntu-hardened] Guest account - security implications?

On Xubuntu 12.04 is available an option to logging on the guest account
without having to type a password. By logging in as a guest, everything
just like on a normal user account? I mean iptables settings, auto-updates,
or fstab mount's options etc. There is also AppArmor lightdm-guest-session
profile; I hope this is not the only protection.

Best regards!
