Yesterday’s release of the macOS Ventura 13.4 release candidate brings a fix for the irritating content filter bug that was reported in an earlier version of the macOS Ventura 13.4 beta. Some beta users have reported networking issues on machines with content-filtering apps like Little Snitch and Radio Silence installed.
Users on Twitter and other forums reported that after installing the beta, they were experiencing network connectivity issues. Users were able to narrow it down to interference with network filtering. One user said he saw his network cycling on and off repeatedly until he uninstalled Little Snitch. Another user reported an issue with his Mac disconnecting after updating and he was able to fix it by turning off Radio Silence.
I've received word from multiple testers that the Ventura 13.4 RC release fixes the Network Content Filter issue.🎉👍 https://t.co/nLox64Mu48

While disabling content filtering apps was a stop-gap fix for the problem, now it appears that Apple has fixed the overall issue and now content filter apps can now be used with the macOS Ventura 13.4 update.
macOS Ventura 13.4 and iOS 16.5 will be released to the public next week.
