    Right after it was released, there was a nasty security bug/flaw that was present. Just curious to those who have yet to update. Have you? And is it safe to do so now?

    Still on Sierra. On a MBP wTB 2017 released just before OS High Seirra, but had no reason to update.

    To be honest, I wish I'd stayed on the last version of Sierra. HS introduced some instability and Mojave seems to be more stable but has significantly decreased the usable sleep time and introduced some other issues. Everything worked better in Sierra so I'll likely go back to that. I'll try to update to .1 of Mojave when it's ready, but if that still causes me issues I'll go back to the final Sierra.

    I installed Mojave the day it was released. Outside of a few very small bugs, I haven't had any problems. I am enjoying it thus far.

    I installed Mojave since launch day and it is the best update so far on my iMac that came with El Captain. Apps open quicker and the overall system feels a little more snappier. I didn't have any issues so far compared to last year.

    The security issue is not as bad as media said. Basically no different to High Sierra.

    This security bug is a bit overblown in the media. It's a new feature that is exclusive to Mojave. Even if this new feature doesn't work exactly right in Mojave, the system is almost certainly more secure than High Sierra is.

    What do you mean by "usuable sleep time"?

    My usb keyboard was causing Mojave not to wake from sleep mode. Now I’m using a Bluetooth keyboard and that issue has stop... there are minor glitches that will be solved in the next update.

    With Sierra I lost 4% to 6% overnight. With Mojave it’s closer to 30%. It means I need to be more careful about ensuring that I’m planning on having access to my charger, whereas with Sierra it was far less of an issue.

    If that is so then I’d suspect the Power Nap feature. Try disabling it and see if it helps. Instructions for how to disable are here:
