Hollywood filmmakers, editors, and post-production companies are now reporting that their Mac Pro workstations failed to boot.

According to various social media post, users running an older version of macOS and Avid Media Composer software are facing the issue. And as per variety, the issue is widespread.

Avid released an official statement saying that

Avid is aware of the reboot issue affecting Apple Mac Pro devices running some Avid products, which arose late yesterday. This issue is top priority for our engineering and support teams, who have been working diligently to determine and resolve the root cause. As we learn more, we will immediately publish information—directly to our customers and via our community forums and social media platforms—in order to resolve this issue for all affected customers and prevent any further issues.

On the other hand, Google yesterday said that a recent update rolled out to Chrome users on Mac caused the issue. You can know more about it here.

We recently discovered that a Chrome update may have shipped with a bug that damages the file system on macOS machines with System Integrity Protection (SIP) disabled, including machines that do not support SIP. We’ve paused the release while we finalize a new update that addresses the problem.

Notably, If you have not taken steps to disable System Integrity Protection and your computer is on OS X 10.9 or later, this issue cannot affect you, Google said.
