We've reached out to Apple and will update this post when we hear back.
Yesterday we wrote about a publicly-disclosed problem in Apple's macOS 10.13, better known as High Sierra. You'll need to enter in your administrator name and password again, then open the menu bar in Directory Utility and click on "Edit" then 'Change Root Password...' You can find instructions on how to do so below. If, for some odd reason, you can't update your Mac immediately, you can apply a temporary Band-Aid by enabling a root user on your Mac. The bug reportedly is not in any other MacOS. Every baby or child then use that gap. It can also be exploited at the login screen of a locked Mac (even after a reboot), providing the flaw has been used before.
Security experts warned that the security hole was both embarrassing for the company and risky, allowing anyone with physical access - and in some instances remote access - to a Mac computer to gain full access to user data.
The glitch is said to also create a "root" account, in turn opening up all kinds of security risks for your computer to be targeted by unsavoury types.
Everyone running macOS 10.13.1 High Sierra should install this security update via Software Update immediately.
In October a flaw was discovered that could have allowed anyone to gain access to encrypted hard disk volumes. Ensuring that unauthorized users can't act as the root user in a Unix system is basic security, because anyone who can become root can do anything they want.
Turkish developer Lemi Orhan Ergan outed the flaw on Twitter on Tuesday (below) but has since received criticism for the "irresponsible" way in which he did so.
After installing the update, a Mac we tested that had previously vulnerable to the bug was no longer affected. When that happens, "Make sure to update your Macs and MacBooks at your earliest opportunity after it is released", he added.
Ironically, the support forum thread, a community discussion that seems to have gone unnoticed by Apple itself, was about losing administrator access after updating to High Sierra - and this very bug was presented as a handy hack to restore things to normal.
