Apple certainly means well with the Software Updates, but sometimes I get update notifications I just don’t care about, or just don’t want to install for whatever reason.

The only security-related update that Apple is continuing to release for Snow Leopard through Mavericks is the XProtect "[un]Safe Downloads List," which blocks a handful of malicious downloads (although signatures are often added too late to be of much use) and prevents Flash and Java content from running in your browser—if your plug-ins are too outdated and likely to be exploited.

It's important to note that XProtect updates, while better than nothing, are by themselves insufficient to adequately protect your Mac.

Apple recently released a new version of its Mac operating system, mac OS Sierra (version 10.12).

With the release of Sierra, Apple decided to drop support for some Mac models that were supported by several previous releases of the Mac operating system.

(Yes you can ignore Mac App Store updates too, here’s how).

This works in all pre App Store versions of Mac OS X, including Snow Leopard and prior.

Keeping up with the latest mac OS updates and using third-party antivirus and security software (might we recommend some?

) are important factors in keeping your Mac protected.

Note: Although this article was written for mac OS Sierra (10.12), much of it still applies to mac OS High Sierra (10.13) which was released in September 2017.

High Sierra's system requirements are the same, except that High Sierra now requires 14.3 GB of available disk space, and a minimum of OS X Mountain Lion (10.8) to do a direct-upgrade installation.
