A crucial flaw was revealed in Apple's macOS High Sierra operating system wherein a password was not needed to gain admin access to it. Scary stuff, but paradoxically you need the superuser access that the rootaccount has in order to set a new root userspassword. If Guest Accounts are enabled, or if the user has selected to use the old-fashioned username-and-password login screen in place of its icon-based replacement, however, access is possible even from a cold boot.
Click then lock icon in the Directory Utility window, then enter an administrator name and password.
Here is how to change the password of a rootaccount since it appears there already is one being shipped with every Mac without requiring a password. Also, if FileVault (full disk encyrption) is turned on and the Mac is shut down rather than logged off or locked, you have to enter the disk password before you can get at a login prompt at all.
The vulnerability was first discovered by Lemi Orhan Ergin, the founder of Software Craftsmanship Turkey, who tweeted Apple Support Tuesday. However, it appears that a hole in macOS High Sierra's security programming allows pretty much anyone to assume this omnipotent, albeit risky role.
Apple has released instructions prompting users how to login with root and add a password to the username. Are you aware of it @Apple?'
'Then use "root" with no password. And try it for several times.
Apple's official word on the situation is that they're now working on a software update to "address this issue". For years Apple computers were more secure, but that was because their market share was so small that few hackers were interested in writing software to attack the company's userbase. To enable the Root User and set a password, please follow the instructions here: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204012M.
The flaw can also been exploited remotely if a user has screen sharing enabled. Then you can go to the terminal to an type "dsenableroot -d" (without quotes) to turn off root access.
