macOS HIgh Sierra Serious Bug
« on: November 28, 2017, 07:55:36 pm »
No matter who makes your OS, there can be issues. For the most part macOS as been very solid, but at times there are issues. The latest issue facing High Sierra allows full admin access without a password. The solution is pretty simple though. All you have to do is set a password for the "root" user and you're good to go. Out of the box though, you can get full access without any passwords or prompts. That's a bit of an oversight.

   The vulnerability effectively allows someone with physical access to the machine to log in, cause extra mischief, install malware, and so on. You should not leave your vulnerable Mac unattended, nor allow remote desktop access, until you can fix the problem.Source: TheRegister
