SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — Apple released an update Wednesday to fix its newest operating system which has a major bug that could let anyone access a computer.

The flaw affects anyone with the macOS High Sierra.

Security researchers first found the glitch which lets people log on without using a password.

All they have to do is type “root” in the username field without a password.

Apple has since released an update to fix the vulnerability.
