When I restarted my MacBook Pro this morning, I received a request to load “System software from developer ‘Oracle America, Inc.’” Going into System Preferences: Security and Privacy: General, there is a notice that it was blocked from loading, with a button to allow it.
Although I am familiar with Oracle, I’m not certain why I would get the request suddenly; and, of course, I don’t want to risk allowing malware to load that is spoofing Oracle’s identity. I did not install any new software since I last restarted my MBP before this morning.
A quick search of the internet found similar messages relating to VirtualBox and Safari. I do have VirtualBox, but have not loaded it in well over a year. And the message did not come from Safari. I have not updated Java.
I wish I could get more information regarding the actual origin of the request.
If anyone has any insights, I’d be glad to hear them.
