Users Discover MacOS High Sierra Login Error

X

Apple customers have found a login error for the High Sierra operating system where you can login into the system without a password putting the user’s data and information at risk.

According to Bloomberg Technology when people enter the word ‘root’ as a username and don’t put in a password the system malfunctions and logs into the system.

One user reported the ability to access the computer using the root login remotely.

Steve Troughton-Smith, a Mac software developer posted on Twitter, “A password prompt that authenticates as root with an empty password would be a black eye for any OS. Never mind one from a security and privacy-conscious company such as Apple.”

Apple spokesman Bill Evans says Apple is “working on a software update to address this issue. In the meantime, setting a root password prevents unauthorized access to your Mac.”

Apple has released instructions prompting users how to login with root and add a password to the username. However, the issue will only be properly resolved once Apple releases a new software update which Apple says it is working on but has not confirmed when it will be released.

The new AppleOS was released in September.
