Apple Bug Found In New High Sierra OS

Apple has shipped its latest operating system with a serious flaw.  It seems that anyone, without a password, can easily create a new root account.  What this means is that this account can have access to all files on the computer!  The root account is the most powerful account on a computer because it has access to all files.  This is why we recommend never using a root account on your computer to keep it secure.  But in this case, Apple seemed to leave this horrible loophole in place for hackers to easily install a keylogger or other malware on your computer.  Word is out that a patch was released yesterday to fix this.  This is still quite a big oversight on the part of Apple’s quality control.
