Privacy, Security, Encryption "A little over two weeks have passed since the appearance of MAC Defender, the fake AV solution targeting Mac users. And seeing that the approach had considerable success, it can hardly come as a surprise that attackers chose to replicate it. This time, the name of the rogue AV is Mac Protector, and the downloaded Trojan contains two additional packages. As with MAC Defender, the application requires root privileges to get installed, so the user is asked to enter the password."

In my book: If the program does not tell you why... it doesn't get installed.

Then, if you don't understand what you are granting, you shouldn’t be allowing anyway.

Social engineering in these problems is the largest problem.
