Apple Rolls Out Permanent Security Fix in macOS High Sierra 10.13.2

Apple was faced with exposure of a severe flaw in its macOS High Sierra operating system recently. The company distributed a fix, but it ended up breaking file sharing.

On Wednesday, the company rolled out a proper full update for the operating system that is intended to solve the security problem.

Details

This update is recommended for all macOS High Sierra users.

The macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 Update improves the security, stability, and compatibility of your Mac, and is recommended for all users.

This update:

  • Improves compatibility with certain third-party USB audio devices.
  • Improves VoiceOver navigation when viewing PDF documents in Preview.
  • Improves compatibility of Braille displays with Mail.

 

Enterprise content:

  • Improves performance when using credentials stored in the keychain to access SharePoint websites that use NTLM authentication.
  • Resolves an issue that prevented the Mac App Store and other processes invoked by Launch Daemons from working on networks that use proxy information defined in a PAC file.
  • If you change your Active Directory user password outside of Users & Groups preferences, the new password can now be used to unlock your FileVault volume (previously, only the old password would unlock the volume).
  • Improves compatibility with SMB home directories when the share point contains a dollar sign in its name.
