Beginning yesterday, Wednesday, Jan. 24, Missouri S&T IT began pushing out mandatory security updates for MacOS Sonoma, Ventura, and Monterey on JAMF-enabled machines. MacOS Sonoma 14.3, Ventura 13.6.4, and Monterey 12.7.3 address multiple major security flaws and it is highly recommended that faculty and staff update at their earliest convenience. iOS, iPadOS, TVOS, and watchOS are also subject to security updates and IT recommends that any unmanaged Apple devices on campus be patched.
Mac users on JAMF-enabled machines will begin seeing push notifications in the upper right corner of their screens prompting them to upgrade.
Some upgrades were deferred. Beginning this Saturday, Jan. 27, deferment will no longer be allowed. If you have not upgraded your Mac to a secure version of MacOS by Friday afternoon, leave your machine on over the weekend so it can receive unattended updates. For more details about the upgrade, please check the bulleted list below:
For reference, the push notification upgrade prompt is pictured below. When you see it, there is no cause for alarm. To defer the upgrade, choose the “try tonight” button in the drop-down menu.
