Below is a link to the video of the talk, the slides in a PDF & the video of all talks from that night.
This post is a redux of the #iamroot vulnerability. The vulnerability was fully patched in 10.13.2, so there is nothing new here.
Secondly, this is also another excuse to post a dancing Groot gif.
A couple of days ago I posted on the #iamroot vulnerability, well it’s now been fixed by Apple (yay!), but this then broke something else (boo!).
See below for a round up & some more detail on the above.

Earlier tonight I was pointed to a tweet that seemed to show an easy manner for people on High Sierra were able to simply enable root.
Well, the vuln is real. See below for a link to a fix for the issue whilst we await Apple to push a High Sierra update.
On day 3 of JNUC 2017, I gave my third & final talk of the conference: “Securely Managing Identities Across Mac and G Suite with JumpCloud”
This talk should show just how easy it is to get started with JumpCloud. Along with an overview of how at dataJAR we’re leveraging JumpCloud to integrate G Suite within our Jamf|MSP platform (datajar.mobi), as well as bridging authentication across various other cloud systems & bring 2FA to our Macs.
On day 2 of JNUC 2017, I was asked to participate in a panel titled “Modern Packaging and Distribution Workflows Panel”.
I was the only “non-vendor” & according to the thumbnail I’m seemingly the only person on the panel gazing over at Charles Edge.
But if your not a fan of mine (erm welcome to my blog), you’ll be pleased to know I don’t say much.
