(a) it does *not* require a dump and restore
(b) if you ignore the recommendations in the 7.4.8 notes and just
upgrade without doing anything else, then what you will have is a
7.4 system that still contains two security vulnerabilities.
Vulnerabilities that are in your 7.4.5 system today. How are you
This is about the lamest excuse for not updating I've ever heard.
