If you have any Eltima Software installed on your Mac, you may have some Malware along with it.  This is another legitimate piece of software that Hackers have managed to sneak in some malicious code.  Remember recently CCleaner suffered the same fate. Look for the existence of any of these files: /tmp/Updater.app/ /Library/LaunchAgents/com.Eltima.UpdaterAgent.plist /Library/.rand/ /Library/.rand/updateragent.app/ Read the full article on the Register (link below) http://www.theregister.co.uk/2017/10/20/mac_os_reinstall_eltima_elmedia_malware/ This proves that you can do everything as securely as possible and still get compromised from a “Trusted” source. Safe computing, and ALWAYS have a reliable trusted AntiVirus software installed.  We Recommend WebRoot.
