    So, Yesterday sh*t hit the fan on twitter:
    Epic security fail at Apple MacOS High Sierra-5a1dfe88a5e13.png
    https://twitter.com/lemiorhan/status/935578694541770752

    Apparently, if you have MacOS with High Sierra and you did not set the root password beforehand, your system is highly vulnerable, allowing ANYONE (including remote access!) to gain root access to your machine.

    you just use the user name as root, hit enter/login few times as voila!

    Funny enough, this issue has been posted on the Apple support forum few weeks ago:

    I mean, this is HUGE

    Oopsie... yep, I read the story.

    Still on El Cap here... :-D

    Ubuntu had a bug years ago that left the user / root password in the installation log file. But surely this is another level, Apple... ouch!
