"Month 13 is out of date" is spewing to Console

Number:rdar://35797058 Date Originated:12-01-2017
Status:Open Resolved:
Product:macOS Product Version:10.13.1
Classification:Serious bug Reproducible:Always
NOTE: I am not going to attach a sysdiagnose because this issue is pervasive across four Macs here. I have confirmed with six other Mac users that they are seeing the issue as well, so a sysdiagnose will be of no help, and I'd need to attach four of them, for the four Macs I'm seeing the issue on. That's 6GB+ of useless data.

Summary: As of December 1st, Console is filling—at the rate of 2 to 25 per second—with "Month 13 is out of bounds" error messages. It's apparently being generated by a bug in mdworker.

Steps to Reproduce: Use High Sierra on or after December 1, 2017, and probably before January 1, 2018.

Expected Results: No spewing to Console.

Actual Results: Spewing to Console.

Version/Build: 10.13.1 (17B1003)

Configuration: Irrelevant. Happens on every Mac I own running High Sierra, and just started this morning, December 1st, 2017.


Same issue on my devices

Exact same issue happening to me. Restarted yesterday and got full RAM and CPU usage; killed UserEventAgent and set date prior to December 2017 to solve the problem.
