Mac OS Security Issue

I saw this on an another forum and thought it worth sharing just in case there are any Mac users on here.
Anyone with access to a Mac running the High Sierra Operating System can gain access by using the user name "Root" and leave the password blank.

There is a fix here.

Re: Mac OS Security Issue

I assume it’s only with the High Sierra O/S that you can access the computer in that method.
It doesn’t work with Yosemite on my Mac.
But thanks for posting the information.

Thank you for that.
It is always worth a heads up on security stuff.
