Without explaining what the actual bug is (we don't want to make it any easier for potential hackers than this already is, and you can find it on Twitter pretty easily), someone can login to a Mac by typing a word in the login field, leaving the password field blank, and attempting to log in several times.

Many people responding to that tweet said they were relieved to learn that this extremely serious oversight by Apple does not appear to be exploitable remotely. To exploit the vulnerability, someone with access to the computer can type "root" and no password in the Users & Groups section of System Preferences. If you do that, High Sierra promptly sets up a new account called System Administrator and a home folder located in /private/var/root.
The level of unbridled access this security hole permits - and it abruptly being made public - will nearly certainly prompt Apple to move fast in releasing an update for its Mac operating system. They can change any users' password, allowing them to log in and access things like email and browser passwords. Then from the menu bar at the top of the screen, click on the "Edit" menu and choose "Enable Root User".
Effectively, this issue renders any system running macOS High Sierra completely unsecured - as it doesn't just unlock the device, it gives Admin access.
Go to System Preferences then click Users & Groups (or Accounts).
Click in the Directory Utility window, then enter an administrator name and password.
You can patch this problem right now by creating a root account manually and giving it a secure password.
