I checked this out (below) after reading it on MacRumors.com (thanks to Martin D for forwarding the link). OMG:
I was able to unlock the AppStore preferences using passwords “foobar” and “AppleQualityControl_IsAnOxymoron”. Anything works.
This follows on the heels of the logging in as root without any password, the kernel zero day exploit and with KeyChain proxy crashing and of course pocket dialing (and don’t even mention Siri, which is happy to dial a random number in Pakistan for me).
Botched releases and botched fixes for bugs that have to be re-fixed. It would be funny if it were not. Who knows how many other severe security bugs have been introduced in High Sierra?
Severe security bugs will probably keep popping up like mushrooms in a forest after a heavy autumn rain. Which is why back in September MPG advised waiting 6 months to install macOS High Sierra. Of course Apple makes going back to macOS Sierra very difficult, by mangling user data like Mail and Calendar—no easy going back without data loss—an unacceptable violation of customer data in my view.
Makes one wonder about wunderland California as to whether the new pot laws are part of the workplace. The name is apt, but 'macOS Santa Cruz' would have been better.
