I use RansomWhere, a tool to protect from ransomware. I have OS X Yosemite.
As far as I understand, RansomWhere just warns me whenever an app tries to encrypt data. It's up to the user to judge whether they trust a process or not. (And whether the application is one which should need to encrypt data.) The user is given the choice of
Terminate each time there is a warning. It has warned me about several apps I trust and that I figure did need to encrypt data, and I have simply clicked
However, just now I got a warning about a process I don't know what was. The message said "is encrypting data", so I figuredd I had to hurry, so I just clicked
Terminate immediately after seeing that I wasn't sure what the process actually was. After clicking
Terminate, the dialogue box disappeared, and I heard nothing more from RansomWhere regarding the issue.
Now, I want to know what this process actually was and what was going on. I don't remember the details given in the message, just that I wasn't sure which process it was. I wish I would have taken a second to take a screenshot before pressing
Terminate, but unfortunately, I didn't.
How can I find out which process this was and what was going on?
