In the Terminal you must first login as root/superuser.

1. In the Terminal type
Code: Select all
sudo su
and press return.
2. Type in the password of the administrator account of your Mac and press return (you don't see an indication that you are typing your password).
Now you are logged in as superuser and you can enter the command you posted. Be careful though with typing in commands in the Terminal when you are logged in as superuser, because if you don't know what you're doing you can seriously damage your system (for example, there is a command to remove files without a warning).

Kann mir jemand erklären, wie diese Anweisung umzusetzen ist?:

"Zum Schließen dieser Sicherheitslücken einfach als root den folgenden Befehl aufrufen:
/Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/xampp security
Dadurch wird ein dialoggeführtes Programm gestartet, welches alle diese Sicherheitslücken schließen kann."

Was heißt "als root"? Wo genau muss ich das eingeben, und wie komme ich dahin? Bitte verschont mich von Häme und Spott und kryptischen Andeutungen - auch wenn das üblich ist; der Ärger ist so schon groß genug, und ich bin alt genug, so dumm fragen zu dürfen. Danke.
