Damien Barrett: Panther Bug

Quote: “I think I’ve inadvertently discovered a serious bug in Panther. I’ve confirmed this on two different computers. Panther apparently allows admin users to drag the folder /System to the trash, which then will immediately cause the Finder to go into a spinning pizza of death (SPOD). Your only option is to shut down the computer. And then because the System is in the trash, the computer is rendered unbootable!!!”

Comment: Check this out if you’re using Mac OS X 10.3. Be careful. ——-
