A developer from Italy named Luca Todesco has recently discovered a new zero-day vulnerability, which lets hackers gain root access in OS X Yosemite without using a password. This vulnerability is similar to the DYLD_PRINT_TO_FILE exploit that has been patched in OS X Yosemite 10.10.5. The developer has reported the vulnerability to Apple, however, it hasn’t been fixed by the guys from Cupertino in the latest update. I honestly hope that Apple developers will react somehow and close a hole in OS X security as soon as possible.
