Apple released a new version/upgrade to their operating system called High Sierra. In addition to all the new features they accidentally removed the password from the ‘root’ account. Anyone could get full administrative rights to any Mac without entering a password. Whoopsie. This episode goes into the event and why we need to stay on top of updates and patches. 

Be aware, be safe.
