emergency please help!

I was installing some recessed lighting in my rental house and when I got into the attic i noticed there was moisture and what looked like mold all over the place. I looked in my closet where the furnace is and saw the vent pipe was totally disconected,allowing the hot air to go directly into the attic. I figure this is whats causing the moisture too form.Any advice will help.

Boy for sure get it fixed right now. That should all be what is called a Double wall type B vent pipe for a gas furnace

Yes for sure. Might spray that mold down after you fix the vent pipe With a 50/50 mix of water and clorox. Check all the attic vents .So that they are open there and air can get in and out
