OMG, Seriously? – APFS Encrypted Plaintext Password Found in ANOTHER (More Persistent!) MacOS Log File – mac4n6.com




UPDATE: PLEASE HELP ME TEST

At some point you just need to stop looking and be blissfully ignorant … this was not one of those days.

In and update to my previously updated blog article, I have found another instance where the plaintext password was written to system logs. This time I found it in more persistent log.

The previous examples were found in the unified logs which can hang around for a few weeks, this new example stores the exact same information in the system's /var/log/install.log. I've found that the install.log will only be wiped out upon major re-installation (ie: 1

0.11 -> 10.12 -> 10.13), therefore these plaintext passwords will hang around for quite a bit longer than a few weeks! I had entries dating back to when I originally installed High Sierra on this system back in November of 2017!
