Cb Protection 10.13.4 MacOS Support

Cb Protection 10.13.4 MacOS Support

[Updated 4/5/18 at 10:35AM (EST)]

All,

The Cb Protection team is pleased to announce support for the 10.13.4 High Sierra macOS. This macOS version is already supported with our 7.2.3 Patch 9 Cb Protection macOS agent.

Please see our Supported Operating Systems UeX post for more detailed information on Cb Protection supported OS versions.

Important: Internal testing has confirmed that Apple has introduced changes in 10.13.4 with how the macOS update is applied to a machine. This change in behavior prevents us from "seeing" some system files when they are written, requiring manual approval of these files. Please see below for the most efficient way to upgrade to 10.13.4 and prevent unwanted blocks.

Recommended Upgrade Procedure

  1. Move any Mac to be upgraded into Local Approval mode
    1. Go to Computers and select the checkboxes next to the Macs to be upgraded
    2. Click the Action menu and select Move to Local Approval
  2. Apply the 10.13.4 macOS Update to the selected Mac(s)
  3. Move the Mac agent(s) back into its original enforcement policy
    1. Go to Computers and select the checkboxes next to the Macs you wish to reset the policies for
    2. Select Restore to Normal Enforcement Level from the Action menu
  4. Perform a Cache Consistency Check with the level Full Scan For New Files
    1. Click the details icon for the Mac that has been upgraded and select Perform Cache Consistency Check from the right-hand menu
    2. Important Note: You must select the Approve New Files checkbox under the Full Scan For New Files option in order for these newly detected system files to be approved.

Thanks!

All,

Our 10.13.4 macOS testing is still pending completion. Testing of the new 10.13.4 macOS continues to show no compatibility issues with our 7.2.3 Patch 9 Mac agent, however we recommend not upgrading to this new macOS until we have completed our OS testing.

We will provide the next status update to this post after completing our 10.13.4 macOS testing.

Thanks!

All,

We are continuing to test our Cb Protection Mac agent with the new 10.13.4 High Sierra macOS that was released yesterday. Our beta testing of 10.13.4 macOS has shown no compatibility issues with our 7.2.3 Patch 9 Mac agent, however we recommend not upgrading to this new macOS until we have completed our OS testing.

We will update this post later today with a status update.

Thanks!

Please be aware that 10.13.4 breaks the Mac Displaylink driver support. 

macOS 10.13.4 update breaks Duet Display, Air Display & USB DisplayLink drivers

Internal testing has confirmed that Apple has introduced changes in 10.13.4 with how the macOS update is applied to a machine. This change in behavior prevents us from "seeing" some system files when they are written, requiring manual approval of these files.

Does this apply to:—

  • Apple Security Update 2018-002 for Sierra
  • Apple Security Update 2018-002 for El Capitan

both of which were released by Apple on the same day as 10.13.4?

Would like to know if this is related as a user had a security update 2018-002 and says their MAC machine crashed.
