cupertino - A computer expert has discovered a major vulnerability in the latest operating system from Apple, High Sierra. The American company says to work on an update to solve the problem.

A Turkish expert said on Twitter that it was possible to get into the operating system by logging in with a so-called root account without a password. This allows a user to change important settings and passwords and even take control of the computer.

Apple is currently advising users to set a separate password for the root account until the update is there. The computer company is precisely known for always having the security of products in order.
