According to a Wired report on Friday, multiple users have confirmed that upgrading from macOS 10.13.0 High Sierra to the latest version 10.13.1, released at the end of October, disables Apple's security patch for the root user login flaw. Ergin said staff members reported the vulnerability to Apple on November 23, and he disclosed the flaw publicly in a tweet on Tuesday.
MacOS High Sierra has discovered a vulnerability that allows anyone to get extended run as the root user.
This has been an incredibly terrible week for Apple's operating systems. He wrote "On Nov 23, the staff members informed Apple about it (bug issue)".
It is noted that remotely realize the vulnerability impossible - the attacker must still have direct access to your device.

Once this latest software blunder was brought to Apple's attention, it published a new support document to walk users through some [relatively] simple steps to fix file sharing. As a temporary measure Apple recommends to activate the root user and set the password manually. "If a Root User is already enabled, to ensure a blank password is not set, please follow the instructions from the "Change the root password" section". It seems that Apple was predicting a particular order in which users would do things, and this assumption means the original problem can be reintroduced.
Developers can download the macOS Developer Beta Access Utility from the link below... "Some bug in authentication is ENABLING root with no password the first time it fails!" While the security update is now available for download from Mac App Store, Apple said it will also be automatically installing the patch on all Macs running macOS High Sierra 10.13.1. When that happens, "Make sure to update your Macs and MacBooks at your earliest opportunity after it is released", he added.
