Just weeks after a shocking security flaw that gave anyone the ability to access the root account on a macOS High Sierra computer was revealed by a software developer on Twitter, a new vulnerability has come to light. This Monday, a bug report on Open Radar brought attention to newly-discovered issue which allows the System Preferences of the App Store on macOS High Sierra computers to be unlocked with any password.
As the bug report explains, the user has to be logged into an account with administrator-level access in order for the bug to work. But as long as you're logged in as an admin, you can duplicate this on any High Sierra machine.
