Exploit for macOS platform in category local exploits

                                        
                                            # Sera is a free app for mac and iOS that lets you unlock your mac automatically
# when your iphone is within a configured proximity.
 
# Unfortunately to facilitate this it stores the users login password in their
# home directory at:
 
# ~/Library/Preferences/no.ignitum.SeraOSX.plist
 
# This makes root privilege escalation trivial and worse than that even
# facilitates dumping the keychain as we can easily obtain the user's login
# password. If they are an admin user we can even dump items from the system
# keychain.
 
# The author of Sera has said he will shut the project down and make the code
# publicly available so no fix is likely to be forthcoming anytime soon.
 
# It is strongly recommended not to use this app and if you have done so in the
# past make sure you remove this file that contains your login password.
