Have you updated to High Sierra yet?
In the video, Wardle demonstrates a local exploit using an app he built dubbed "keychainStealer".
If you think that sticking with Sierra, for the time being, will fix it, you should know that older macOS versions are also susceptible to the same attack. Downloaded files will take up less space on the Mac also.
Wardle claims that the exploit could be embedded into legitimate-looking apps to pull passwords from unsuspecting users. If you'd rather do this on your Mac, which needs to be running OS X 10.11 El Capitan or later, click the Apple icon in the top left corner, select System preferences, click iCloud, click Account Details, click Security and click Turn On Two-Factor Authentication.

The Photos app now has a new Edit view that allows users to fine-tune the colours and contrast of an image, and will also, for the first time, grant direct access to third-party publishing services from within the app. But the new OS apparently comes with a security problem, too - a security researcher at Synack has already discovered a way to snatch passwords from High Sierra.
