Many folk visiting the Apple Support Communities (ASC) with queries are some of the most naive and unaware computer users on the planet. In other words, vulnerable.
Often they are recommended to visit the Etresoft web page and download a product called EtreCheck, run it and then post the resultant report on ASC for peer review.
One recent ‘visitor’ claims that he visited Etresoft, chose NOT to download the software …… but nevertheless later discovered that it HAD been downloaded onto his iMac.
Can you check it out please?
Might the software have an unexpected payload?
