Security Alert for the Apple Mac-ists MacOS
You need to either set a root password, don’t let your Mac out of your sight (although you probably take it to bad n that), or patch when the patch is out. If you don’t know what the root account is it’s like an account for God, Jesus, Allah and Darth Vader combined.
Apologies if it’s already been posted but it’s not on page 1 or 2 and I’d expect continued debate not least from the anti-<insert favourite OS here>-brigade.Posted 2 months agodoris5000Member
I read somewhere that the root account doesn’t necessarily exist until you try to log in to it. Then it helpfully creates one for you, with no pwd 😆
Glad I haven’t gone to High Sierra yet! Usually leave any OS upgrades to at least x.2 but with Sierra I left it a lot longer than that. Probably will do for this one too…Posted 2 months agoseosamh77Subscriber
expose, hot corners(show desktop, show all window, show application windows), and being able to grab a file, hit the corner and drop it in to some other program or what not, whether on the dock or in the window or between desktop. Windows doesn’t work do great that way, spring loaded folders would be great too. Mean you can navigate fairly extensively just with the flick of a mouse.
I’ve got a thing for windows 10 that gives me a hot corner for desktop and all windows (just the new task view and desktops browser), but it’s a pale imitation, and you can’t drag and drop.
It’s the bestest thing in the world about OSX. 😆 has been since it was introduced in 10.3(I think.)Posted 2 months agodoris5000Member
I thought it was all Mac OSes, not just HS. Maybe miss heard it on the radio..
Just HS according to Macrumors: https://www.macrumors.com/2017/11/29/apple-fixes-root-password-bug-security-update/Posted 2 months ago
