Installer password on trying to update FSecure

On OS/X, on trying to install an update, I get to a screen entitled "Installer is trying to install new software" which is asking for a password.  I've tried my OS/X password and my FSecure login password without success.  Can someone please tell me which password it's asking for?

    Based on this Knowledge base article:


    And based on potential feelings (like comparison with Windows UAC) and some articles on web (about Mac) it should be:

    • administrative credentials;

    So, maybe not your password -> but password of administrative user under your system. I'm not sure about certain points - but there was recently some stories about Mac platform and their 'root' administrative passwords troubles (maybe you did change it ?! and if so -> should be this one maybe).
