    I still have it on my Windows 10 computers (Lifetime License). No problems on the Mac or Windows.
    After reading the security Big Sur has I my drop the third party security when / if I upgrade to Big Sur. I'm still debating on that.

    I've not had any problems with Big Sur.

    I did this Security update in December on Catalina (2020-001)
    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/threads/apple-security-updates.368333/page-9#post-2974288
    During the update I got this:

    I had to do First Aid to complete the update. After the update was completed the Mac worked fine until the next Security update on 1 February (2021-001).

    During this update the black screen with the circle showed up twice for about a minute. But this time it continued the update without using First Aid. I never had any problems with update or upgrades on the Mac. It may be possible that Apple mixed a Big Sur file in the updating of Catalina, I don't know for sure. Hopefully when I upgrade to Big Sur it will fix this problem.

    That's a tad disconcerting. Although this is another reason I'm not a huge fan of third party security programs as they can often be the cause of these sort of problems.

    I always uninstall all third party security software before updating / upgrading. So during these updates Malwarebytes was not on the computer or any traces of it.

    The title is "All Things Mac" so post away, as long as it is security related.
