Re: Only if....

This is the thing. There is a root account. Active. With, apparently, no password. Why on earth there hasn't been a randomised one set (as you have sudo access anyway) is not clear to me and I am disappointed that someone at Apple made that mistake. This is NOT trivial, and I expect fairly harsh words and probably a pink slip event as a consequence for one or more people.
