Known Issues

Reporting of rogue Safari Extensions (Malware)

Apple has included ~/Library/Safari as data covered by Privacy Preferences Policy Control. Currently, our agent is denied from inspecting Safari extensions, and as such we will not see malware which is installed as a Safari Extension. We’re investigating options, but currently do not have an eta on if/when a fix can be implemented.

An interim build 6.6.7.109 is ready, and will be pushed out in the near future. It focuses on finding more malware, and has a few quick fixes.

We look forward to more interim releases such as these. All changes in interim releases will be included in the next full release’s notes.

Features
Many additional malware definitions.

Changes
CrashPlan restart warnings changed to trigger alert with 2 or more restarts.

Fixed
Clearer messages in the PreferencePane if it is the active pane in System Preferences during agent removal.
Support for 10 digit TeamViewer IDs on TV 10 and lower (versions 11 and above already supported the new 10 digit IDs)

An interim build 6.6.7.115 is ready, and will be pushed out in the near future.

We look forward to more interim releases such as these. All changes in interim releases will be included in the next full release’s notes.

Features
Additional Malware Definitions.

Fixed
Attempting to test the FileMaker Server admin credentials in our PreferencePane would incorrectly report a failure.

Fixed a case where agents would not always resume reporting, if they attempted to report while offline.

Great! Is it possible to add recognition of UtilitySearch adware?

Hi @iyura, thanks for this!

Any time you run into a potential piece of malware, would you do the following:

Document any files you remove from the computer as you resolve the issue. Save the paths they were located in, and look for installers left behind in ~/Downloads (or wherever your user saves files).

Files can be uploaded from any computer without logging into our support site by going to

Thanks again!
