If you’re on a Mac, fire up the App Store and install today’s security update NOW.

@aralOh so that's where the guys at GNOME got the terrible idea of conflating the store and the update manager from...
@aral can I claim that I am an amazing engineer by virtue of never fucking up that badly?
I doubt it works that way.
@aral It should be noted this also pushes out & installs automatically in the background (only second time Apple has used this baked in feature) if you're online and able to connect to the store.
@aral Thanks for the tip.
@aral You need physical access to a macOS computer to log in as root, no? Why is this a security bug? If someone has physical access, you have no security.
A Linux computer can boot up straight to root if you have physical access.
