Mojave security update crash– what to do?
Posted by: jonny
Date: September 29, 2020 03:21PM
Hello all. I am seeking advice on what to do after my computer locked up during the most recent Mojave security update. I did a hard reboot, restarted, and everything appears to be working fine. Should I:
One. Go with the flow, leave it as is, and wait for the next update.
Two. Boot in recovery mode and reload the most current Time Machine snapshot.
Three. Boot in recovery mode and reinstall the system.
Four. Something else!

I went with your option # 2 -- worked well for me. I was fortunate that it had been less than 24 hours since I updated, and I had two snapshots, one of which was before the update.

Edit: oh, and I had actually never done a restore from Time Machine backup before, so I learned something new in the process ... I was really surprised at how quickly it did the restore, maybe because the drive is an SSD.

People suffering with very slow systems. All had updated with the latest security update 2020-005 on Mojave. Solution is to re-install Mojave from Apple's Server, and DO NOT run the security update. Here is the link to Mojave [apps.apple.com]

Here is more info and some work arounds... [mrmacintosh.com]

I went with option #3. By the time I knew how serious the problem was, option #2 was off the table.
