macOS Big Sur 11.7.4

Originally published at: macOS Big Sur 11.7.4 - TidBITS

Security patch for Big Sur. (Free, various sizes, macOS 11)

“This update has no published CVE entries” so may not actually be security related beyond facilitating an update to Safari 16.3.1 (16614.

Huh! I guess I don’t know what happens if Apple releases a version of macOS that has no security changes at all. I had previously thought that Apple said “no published CVE entries” when it had made security changes based on internal-only knowledge.

Apparently this might fix some problems with blank Favorite icons in Safari.

Yes, I suspect we will eventually learn of an associated CVE when it gets fixed for some additional OSs.
