OS X El Capitan: Open an app from an unidentified developer

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/11/17

The first trick works for WinBox 3.7 on Mac [download], the second doesn’t.

First trick:

To override your security settings and open the app anyway:

  1. In the Finder, locate the app you want to open.

    Don’t use Launchpad to do this. Launchpad doesn’t allow you to access the shortcut menu.

  2. Press the Control key and click the app icon, then choose Open from the shortcut menu.

  3. Click Open.

    The app is saved as an exception to your security settings, and you can open it in the future by double-clicking it just as you can any registered app.

Second trick:

Note:   Another way to grant an exception for a blocked app is to click the “Open Anyway” button on the Security pane of System Preferences. This button is available for about an hour after you try to open the app.

To open this pane, choose Apple menu > System Preferences, then click Security & Privacy.

github – Open Atom editor from command line – Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/11/17

I have the Atom editor and was wondering how you can open a file or folder from the terminal in Atom. I am using a Mac. I am looking for a way to do this: atom . (opens folder) atom file.js (

The answer to it isn’t any good any more (since then, Atom has evolved), but this comment works splendid:

I solved the issue by choosing “Install Shell Commands” under the “Atom” menu.

It will add a script in /usr/local/bin/atom that starts Atom with the parameters you entered.

Thanks [WayBackrxgx!

OS X Mountain Lion and up: Zoom content on the screen

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/10/27

"Preferences

Accessibiity -> Zoom -> enable checkbox” class=”size-medium” /> Preferences -> Accessibiity -> Zoom -> enable checkbox

I didn’t know this was built-in since Mountain Lion and up, but it is, is startable from the keyboard and it’s tremendously convenient when presenting: [WayBack]: OS X Mountain Lion: Zoom content on the screen.

TL;DR:

  1. System Prefrecences
  2. Accesibility
  3. Zoom
  4. Checkbox

When you believe that you have a keylogger or some sort trojan | Official Apple Support Communities

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/10/16

We thought one of our Macs was compromised, but it wasn’t: it had too many web browsers open so it was crawling like a snake.

The below terminal commands and EtreCheck [Source: etresoft/EtreCheck: Source code for EtreCheck] helped to find out what was running:

kextstat -kl | awk '!/com\.apple/{printf "%s %s\n", $6, $7}'  

sudo launchctl list | sed 1d | awk '!/0x|com\.(apple|openssh|vix)|edu\.mit|org\.(amavis|apache|cups|isc|ntp|postfix|x)/{print $3}'  

launchctl list | sed 1d | awk '!/0x|com\.apple|edu\.mit|org\.(x|openbsd)/{print $3}'  
 
ls -1A /e*/mach* {,/}L*/{Ad,Compon,Ex,Fram,In,Keyb,La,Mail/Bu,P*P,Priv,Qu,Scripti,Servi,Spo,Sta}* L*/Fonts 2> /dev/null  

osascript -e 'tell application "System Events" to get name of every login item' 2> /dev/null

Mac OS X – Hardware Monitor Help: remove com.bresink.driver.BRESINKx86Monitoring

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/10/13

Just in case you have this driver installed:

$ kextstat -kl | awk '!/com\.apple/{printf "%s %s\n", $6, $7}'
com.bresink.driver.BRESINKx86Monitoring (9.0)

[WayBackHardware Monitor Help shows how to remove it:

  1. Ensure you are logged in as user with administrative rights.
  2. Use the Finder to open the folder Library at the topmost level of your system volume, and inside it, the folder StartupItems. If the driver is still installed, you will see the folder BRESINKx86Monitoring at this location.
  3. Drag the folder BRESINKx86Monitoring to the Trash. OS X may ask for your administrator password.
