Apple has pushed an update to MRT – The Eclectic Light Company



One day after updating Gatekeeper data, Apple has just pushed an update to the malware removal tool, MRT, for macOS, and brings the version number to 1.40.

Apple does not provide information about the changes this update brings. As it now confuses the names of malware that it can detect and remove, it seems impossible to correlate modified strings in the app with malicious software known outside Apple.

You can check if this update is installed by opening System Information via About this Mac and select Installations under Software .

A complete list of security data file versions is provided by LockRattler and SystHist for El Capitan, Sierra, High Sierra and Mojave, available from Downloads above. If your Mac has not yet installed this update, you can force an update using LockRattler, or on the command line.

I've updated the reference pages here, which are accessed directly from LockRattler 4.2 and later using the

button.

For those who use the latest version of LockRattler (4.1

8), you should see the new red text feature at work: After installing the update, click the Update button and installation details are updated and displayed in red. If you then close LockRattler and open it again, you will see the MRT version number in red and display the latest update.

I maintain lists of current versions of Mojave security data files on this site, High Sierra on this page, Sierra on this page, and El Capitan on this page.
