Well, to their credit, it didn’t take Apple long to fix their horrendous bug that allowed anyone to log into computers running macOS High Sierra with admin rights, without needing to know a password.
The security update – which Apple advises should be installed “as soon as possible” – is being pushed out via the Mac App Store.
To install it, simply open Mac App Store and click on the “Updates” tab. All you have to do then is click on “Update”, and you’ll be sorted.
Kudos to Apple for readying a fix so quickly, but a security hole as big as this should never have got past quality control in the first place.
