I restart my machine today and straight after the password request from assistantD I get a password request from AOL with my apple id filled in. I filled in the same password and said OK before I thought hang on. I have never seen that request before, I have not ever used aol or installed that app.Certainly not since the the last time I restarted. Their is no app called aol, their is a app called messages from apple that has a preference for AOL. I don't have any login items under my user that should have auto started, I don't have any processes running that seem to have any obvious link to aol or messages. Did I just let some malware sneak by me and give it access to all my passwords? or it just some innocent app that has been sitting through machine upgrades for a decade or more and suddenly decided it needed a password. But even then how did it run on startup if its not in my startup items? I tried restarting again to find out exactly what executable was running but it did not re-appear.
