Genul de vulnerabilitate gasita de o pisica ce se aseaza cu piciorul pe tastaura, pe tasta Enter.


Sunt chiar curios cum arata codul sursa care a provocat vulnerabilitatea, care e algoritmul genial ce te lasa sa te loghezi fara parola la a 2-a incercare. Fie vreun programator beat, fie backdoor.

Acum vreo doua saptamani userul   chethan177  a postat pe Apple development forum si well, Apple missed it :)

Momentul ala cand lumea il considera feature. 

Se pare ca mizeria merge si remote daca ai Screen sharing activat.

Temp fix: parola custom pusa pentru root. Disable root user nu afecteaza.


Eu personal nu am putut reproduce pe doua mac-uri mai vechiute(un air si un pro) cu High Sierra pe ele. Tot upgrade de la Sierra.
