Answers to the most commonly asked questions on my free utilities SilentKnight and its command tool sibling silnite.
Ideal for keeping an eye on networked Macs, this command tool can do everything SilentKnight can in the way of firmware and security update checks.
Apple has just released the 10.14.6 update for macOS Mojave, as well as security updates for High Sierra […]
This update fixes errors seen in previous versions when running in the latest beta, and adds the system version to saved reports.
The apps claim my Mac is running an old version, but that the newer version was installed weeks ago. How come?
First release version of what was EFIcienC, to check EFI firmware, security settings, and security updates automatically.

SwiftUI, notarization, malware detection, and Time Machine for APFS: all look worryingly incomplete in Catalina. Are they a bit premature?

Important changes for anyone distributing command tools in particular, and a good time to ensure you only ship signed and notarized apps if possible.
