guts2client is locking files
My ransomware scanner (other than F-secure SAFE) shows the following notification. Do I need to terminate this action or is it a functionality of F-secure?
The notification says:
guts2client is locking files!
proc: (2326) /usr/local/f-secure/bin/gutsclient
Sorry for my reply.
Generally: "guts2client", "guts2-datadir", "guts2" should be part of valid F-Secure Updating design;
With your examples about "files" noted HydraOSX; And it should be F-Secure Hydra engine for OSX;
Not sure about certain design of Mac, but most likely there also can be "on-the-fly" updating databases/signatures or so (or if not -> locked certain "databases" files and then re-place to fresh ones maybe also expected); So this is should be "functionality of F-secure";
I not able to say about certain "valid or not" status of this situation (since - not clear - if it happened just today?! and as certain fresh activities); Maybe you able to reach F-Secure Support Channel about this concern;
Or maybe there will be proper official response from F-Secure Mac team.
