    For the last month or so I keep getting up a pop up window that says 'Apple wants to make changes'.
    It wants me to enter my password to allow this, I know it's not legit. I have to cancel it 3 times before it goes away then it comes back again next time I'm on my MacBook Pro. I have checked plugins and previously deleted something suspicious but there isn't any there now that I can see causing this issue. There's a lot of conflicting info on the web but it seems like an issue a lot of people are having. Was wondering if someone could provide some accurate info on how to get rid of this. I've had Mac's for over 10 years now and this is the first time I've had any suspicious malware. I'm running the latest 10.14 MacOS.

    Thanks

    Bec

    Run ClamXAV.
    Its the best, as well as the most reliable, as well as quick, as well as the safest, as well as not leaving traces of unwanted code in yr OS.
    You don't need anything else.

    Seems like malware or phishing. I ALMOST fell for that one ONCE when I was half-asleep.
