Satan and the command line

in macOS edited January 2014
This is a spillover from another thread,but I thnk it will be appropriate to post it here as well,the full article is here: <a href=""; target="_blank"></a>;


According to one of our readers, the new MacOS X contains another Satanic holdover from the "BSD Unix" OS mentioned above; to open up certain locked files one has to run a program much like the DOS prompt in Microsoft Windows and type in a secret code: "chmod 666". What other horrors lurk in this thing?

    As has been pointed out elsewhere, that web site is a fake. Millennium at MacNN has a pretty good explanation for it. See the other thread for a quote.
