Three Ugly Mistakes That Guarantee More MacBook Pro Disappointment

Having a safe and secure computer is a requirement that is becoming more important to consumers. For many years the Mac range of computers, from the MacBook in your bag to the Mac Pro hiding under your desk,  was regarded as a gold standard, immune to malware and secure against malicious attacks.

In the last few months that perception has been challenged by errors on the part of Apple and its suppliers. The strong selling point of security is no longer there.

The biggest flaw that sticks in the mind was the discovery that a blank password field would allow anyone to log in with root access to the Mac. Not only is that a pretty big security risk, but to have the flaw be as simple as ‘leave the password field blank’ was embarrassing.
