Heads up: Security update for Duo for macOS

Hey everyone, on Thursday, August 25, 2022, we released version 2.0.0 of Duo for macOS, which includes a security update as well as a new offline access capability.

Duo already notified macOS customers via email about the security issue, with a recommendation to update to the latest version.
