Re: Congratulations on repeating exploits before they can be fixed
"Congratulations on repeating exploits in detail before they can be fixed"
Apple has fixed it. You just have to upgrade to El Capitan. Don't want to upgrade? No problem, you've been warned and are aware of the risk. There's also a workaround in the story. The exploit has been public knowledge for two weeks – the bad guys already know. You should know too.
"However, the article does not Emphasise that you must first have privileged access through an app."
You've misunderstood. This exploit allows normal software – like a simple tool you've downloaded from the web – to gain root-level access without a password. Without prompting the user for a password. That's bad.
