This one is relatively low stakes:
- These settings are unlocked by default for admin users.
- Entering a bogus password only works if you’re logged in as an admin user.
- The settings in this panel aren’t particularly sensitive.
- It’s apparently already fixed in the current High Sierra developer betas.
But, still, this is embarrassing given what we just went through with the very serious root-access-with-no-password bug. As a wise man once said, “Fool me once, shame on… shame on you. Fool me… You can’t get fooled again.”
