CC 3.6 causing crash on macOS 10.15.7?

BWCBWC Cybersecurity Overlord ✭✭✭


for a couple of weeks now my Mac mini (2018) is crashing now and then. It suddenly reboots for no obvious reason.

The Crash Report shows some reference to SonicWallWebProtection every single time, which got me thinking if CC could be the cause of that? It might get started with deployment of CC 3.6, can't think of crashes while using 3.1.

Is anyone else experiencing this kind of trouble?

WebProtection seems to be picky, it complained about an internal URL (https://myserver.mydomain.internal) a couple days ago, but that's maybe another story.

    yes, i experience this occasionally. i'm gathering crash logs and will eventually submit a case. it is not easily reproduced so i do not expect a quick resolution. I experienced it with the 3.1 client, too.

    Thanks @mrt2222 I'am not that eager to open a support case as well. Maybe if it happens more often I feel the pressure.

    @SuroopMC are you aware of any cases which addressing the macOS Crashes? It happened again to me today while sitting in Google Chrome. It all points to SonicWallWebProtection.

    Latest macOS Upates are applied.

    And while we are on it, when checking the CC policies, it appears to me that Web Content Filter isn't enabled for any Group but still blocking, how is that a thing?
