Hi,
I heard that it did not fix a security issue though.

The recent security patch apparently needs to be applied seperately from the new 10.3.4 update.
Unfortunately, the security patch hasn't fully resolved the situation, and IMO, Apple cannot afford
to be seen to be dragging their feet when it comes to issuing important system security updates.

This update does include a number of security updates available separately since the release of 10.3.3.
