Apple didn’t discover the bug. What are you talking about?Yes, there's a crisis. Update to the version of macOS that will force Notarization on you! Coincidence or inside bug discovery they were waiting on to inform Intel of AFTER they had a reason to force people to update to a version of the OS that can control everything you do....
A-series chips are also prone to vulnerabilities, Mac OS is in a yearly increase of malware attacks too. No one is safe nowadays, it is not even about “being careful where you click” anymore, now companies specialize in exploiting every single vulnerability or hole to track, read data or manipulate.
I don’t think it is Apple’s, Intel’s or Window’s fault anymore, they actually do a good job of trying to be ahead.
And the believe that iOS is the most secure system is total BS, restrictive yes, but it is just as bit as vulnerable as any other. I hate that apps go through such lengthy “review” process that is just garbage, but there are many in the AppStore tracking us without consent and stealing our information without the geniuses at Apple stopping them.
Many years ago my app was rejected “because it made no use of iPhone’s features”... and it was approved just after I added a shaking feature, total stupidity, meanwhile apps go through the process with malicious intentions hidden and these guys don’t even know until news go viral and they “act swiftly to remove them”.
Interesting. So I am sure several members are wondering "Notarization? Being forced on me? What's that all about?" The implication that Notarization "can control everything you do" is certainly a scary idea.Yes, there's a crisis. Update to the version of macOS that will force Notarization on you!

A 2010 Mac Mini running El Capitan is looking pretty good right about now
No, this fix is only in 10.14.5. You can disable Hyperthreading where applicable in 10.12.6 or 10.13.6 after installing the most recent security update (with potentially a massive performance penalty) to mitigate the vulnerability in those operating systems.that explains the massive security update for 10.13.6
So how does this control everything you do? It doesn't. Is it a huge imposition on the Mac users? It's not. Is it terribly inconvenient for developers who don't distribute software through the Mac App Store? Well, it is an added step but not an overly onerous one; I don't think it will put anyone out of business. Will it make your computer more secure? Yes, probably, for awhile at least until this, too, is defeated.
But hey, just because you are paranoid and espouse wild conspiracy theories doesn't mean the government isn't watching everything you do. Keep the faith.

You really don't see it, do you? How much open source software is out there? How much does it cost to get an Apple registered developer's status? What on Earth makes you think Apple won't identify everything they don't like from MakeMKV (which lets you dump Blu-Rays, a direct competitor to Apple's streaming service) to emulators (which they've denied in the past on the App Store) as being "Malware" or "other harmful software" ??? The FACT is they can set their software to deny ANYTHING they want. And since Apple has promised that future versions of the Macintosh operating system will REQUIRE Notarization for you to install and/or run the software with NO WAY AROUND IT that means they have the power to DENY you anything they damn well farking feel like.
I know you're a trusting type. TOO trusting, IMO. All I'm saying is that it's a bit late after a burglar has broken into your house stolen your stuff and perhaps even harmed your family to think about getting an alarm system or a gun.
SOME of us have seen this coming for about seven years now and Apple keeps inching its way there to making the Mac a CLOSED platform. Some of you even WANT this as you think it's safer (as if Mac users traditionally have had ANY issues with security compared to a Windows machine). People want to fight for their right to own a gun in the U.S., but when it comes to PRIVACY, they're ready to sell their very soul in the name of "free stuff" (Google), "security" (Apple's latest McGuffin) or anything else. We've become a society of sheep. Keep the "I told you so" ready in a year or two when the hammer finally drops once and for all.
macOS 10.14.4, and the check says I'm upto date,
Manage to get it to see the update after 5 mins, now 10.14.5
Apple go ARM all in, intel x86 and x64 have reached the limit, the CISC is proving to be a thorn in its side preventing it to make it into smartphones and other issues
RISC has been proven the right choice after all, and ARM invented by Acorn a UK company will go down in history inventing the CPU that runs the world, and others like Intel, MOS, Motorola, Zilog tried but in the end they can only be one ARRRRRMMMM
