There will always be people working to exploit the os.

Why wouldn’t you want those exploits patched?
I’ll never understand people who complain about updates. Apple even includes an option to install overnight so you are not even inconvenienced with the install.

I was a little surprised they gave this to us with 17.2 on the horizon literally 10 days away
I am not, nor should anyone else be, especially if they read the notes for the release. This addresses to currently active exploits in the wild, and basically nothing else. If you're looking for any other fixes, you need to wait, as this release will not have them.
