Today without (yet) no evident change in my working Mac running Mountain Lion (10.8.5) I saw at least 10 times an empty window pop up on top of my working environnment..
At each of these events, I noticed that the window in which I was typing lost the focus and consequently what I was typing.
After a few quick investigation I found that this empty window is a Finder window and is clearly related to error messages within:
as this typical one:
2014-09-25 12:16:23.302 GoogleSoftwareUpdateAgent[24197/0xb0289000] [lvl=3] KSDiskImageHDIUtilRun() KSDiskImage hdiutil execution (status: 1): "/tmp/KSDownloadAction.sQtnQHG3Yu/com.google.Chrome.dmg" STDOUT: STDERR: hdiutil: attach failed - no mountable file systems
I don't use the Chrome web browser.
I installed it one year ago to test it from time to time.
I didn't use it recently.
What may be causing these Google Chrome empty Finder windows?
Did someone noticed the same spyware-like behaviour?
Does someone see any way to investigate this suspicious behaviour?
