    Apple Apologizes to All Mac Users, Releases Security Update to Fix Root Password Vulnerability in macOS High Sierra

    Apple has issued an apology 'to all Mac users' following the discovery of a major root password vulnerability discovered in macOS High Sierra. The company has also released a security update which will be automatically installed on all systems running High Sierra 10.13.1.

    ---
    Security is a top priority for every Apple product, and regrettably we stumbled with this release of macOS.

    When our security engineers became aware of the issue Tuesday afternoon, we immediately began working on an update that closes the security hole. This morning, as of 8 a.m., the update is available for download, and starting later today it will be automatically installed on all systems running the latest version (10.13.1) of macOS High Sierra.

    We greatly regret this error and we apologize to all Mac users, both for releasing with this vulnerability and for the concern it has caused. Our customers deserve better. We are auditing our development processes to help prevent this from happening again.

    Apple did this on purpose just to see how long it would take somebody to publicly report it.. then they would patch it in record time and show a high level of customer support...

    All in a days work for Apple ...
