Troubling request of admin permissions

Post by foobogus » Mon Dec 02, 2019 3:35 pm

I found this request for admin permissions to make some changes in my Mac this morning. I’d doesn’t seem triggered by any specific action on my side.

Link to screenshot (seems I can’t upload pictures) : https://ibb.co/jH03MMk

Any clue what’s this about? I’m a bit concerned it could be some type of intrusion via qBitTorrent.

Thanks

If you get qBittorrent from the official site it's always safe. I cannot tell you why this permission has been requested. Maybe if you ran it from "Terminal" it'd say a bit more. But I am sure it's just a Qt thing...
