Do you actually know what you’re installing on your Mac?



With Suspicious Package, you can answer this question and more. Maybe you’re quite literally suspicious of a package you’ve downloaded. Or perhaps you’re just curious about what some package does. Or maybe you want to find out after the fact exactly what files a package scattered across your computer. Whatever the reason, Suspicious Package allows you to see inside an application installer package.

Nice free utility that can do what the more commercial Pacifist.app is able to do.

Both should be good to use to check a download for any added malware etc. or other nasties that "just keep on giving"!!!!

Thanks for the post.

I am a giant software downloader. I have never yet encountered a problem Malwarebytes could not solve.

Anything else is just paranoia.


Hmmm…???
That's a rather large overgeneralized statement regarding Mac problems, especially considering that Malwarebytes is just meant to be used for fixing some specific problems, but it's very good for doing that.
