Little Snitch users.. Whatever you do.. don't upgrade to Mojave if you are not using the LATEST version of Little Snitch BEFORE updating.


Mojave breaks Little Snitch and Little Snitch breaks your network kexts rendering your device completely incapable of accessing the internet to verify application signatures and/or download an uninstaller for Little Snitch. Little Snitch daemon has no idea how to handle the new OS so sits at 99% CPU making the entire experience really fun. Spent hours troubleshooting the issue. Had to download latest version of Little Snitch onto a USB using a second device, and then copy it to the desktop, CMD-Rightclick Open the "Uninstaller" app to bypass the "Internet Verification" of the app's signature which normally hangs half way without network connection. Ran the uninstaller which unbroke the network kexts. Can't say it was as smooth as I had expected. My fault for not updating Little Snitch before upgrading Mojave I guess.


Also, just in case you use your Mac in a corporate environment, the latest version of Trend Micro isn't compatible with Mojave - so again, it consumes a portion of CPU and keeps notifying you via dominant popup of non-existent security permissions that require approval which loop-crashes regardless of if you dismiss or ask to be reminded later. Trend's launcher daemon restarts and the process begins all over again. No easy solution for this one other than to wait for Trend to release update. (In my case, I renamed the Trend launcher folder and then killed the process - not something I recommend the average user does).


My iMac's and Mac Pro's at home (not running Little Snitch or Trend) updated without issue.
