I recently received Gatekeeper Configuration Data 14.0 installed automatically without any notice on my MBP, it's not shown on the normal "Software Update" list. But can be found via Apple > About This Mac > More Info > System Report > Installations. (OS X 10.8.5)

Did anyone else receive that too? and what is it for? I checked few other Macs none of them have it.

UPDATE: this is a quicker way to check it - click the Apple icon on the top menu, press and hold the alt/option key, it turns "About this Mac" to "System Information" then click.

Read about Gatekeeper here:

I have not seen v14.0 myself,

  • Did you receive any other versions of it - Gatekeeper Configuration Data? Why I got it on one Mac not the others? Is there anything I should worry about?

  • Yes, I have Version 12.0 on all my machines, but all my machines are on 10.9.4 or 10.10, I don't have a 10.8 machine. It is not something you should worry about.

  • Since you mention you only get v12.0 on all your Macs, it seems it doesn't get any further updates once it installed the first one. Anyway I will update this when I have more information about it.
