macOS High Sierra unlocks App Store Preferences with any password

IMG_2215 macOS High Sierra that allows anyone to access your App Store system preferences. The bug was spotted by MacWorld and the bug will be fixed in the next update.

In November, an even worse macOS High Sierra bug allowed any user to gain superuser access by simply logging in as “root” and using a blank password.To check  open system preferences on your Mac, click on App Store, then if the padlock on the window is unlocked, click on it to lock it. Then click on the padlock again to unlock it and a prompt should pop up where you can enter your username and password.
