Security researchers are warning of almost a decade old issue with one of the Apple’s macOS feature which was designed for users’ convenience but is potentially exposing the contents of files stored on password-protected encrypted drives.

Earlier this month, security researcher Wojciech Regula from SecuRing published a blog post, about the “Quick Look” feature in macOS that helps users preview photos, documents files, or a folder without opening them.

Regula explained that Quick Look feature generates thumbnails for each file/folder, giving users a convenient way to evaluate files before they open them.
