    I got this message tonight and I'm not sure what it means and I don't want to allow something to access my keychain that shouldn't...

    PubSubAgent is the name of the process used for RSS feeds and syncing them to .Mac/MobileMe. Did you try to sync some bookmarks (in either Mail or Safari) or play with the Keychain Access app?

    Here is a similar discussion on Apple's forums.

    Before I started the MobileMe trial I had some RSS feeds but just last night I added a bunch of News RSS feeds - so that's probably what caused it

    I've started getting the PubSubAgent quit error message also.

    • I can't justify the expense of a MobileMe subscription
    • I do not have dotMac syncing enabled.
    • I am not subscribed to any RSS feeds.
