I'm seeing a common Mac OS Catalina (10.15.6) fault with accountsd/deleted and Siri? (com.apple.siri.e)? It seems to be extremely serious! Does anyone know the cause or solution for this? My computer seems to be overheating a lot and has very very high CPU usage!? Is this because of overheating or something else with Siri and a demon?

OS Version: Mac OS X 10.15.6 (Build 19G73)

Is this a possible "malware" or virus? Or some bug with SQLITE?

What suggestions do people have about this problem?

Thanks! Asher :)

Here is a memory profile... from the command "kextstat -l -k | awk '{n = sprintf("%d", $4); print n, $6}' | sort -n"

    That's a lot of data, but it's not really clear how it fits together and how it relates to whatever problem you actually have. The system seems to be under quite some load though. Can you focus the question on describing the actual problem you want to solve, and a screenshot of Activity Monitor's CPU tab sorted by %CPU (and showing the processes using most CPU currently)? The rest of the data may or may not be required, the question would be easier to read if you don't include it without explanation. You can always add more if people ask for it in comments.

  • Yes, its a very complex problem.. I did clean up a few of the images and also simplified the "top" and memory footprint details.. :)

There was a memory leak in the kernel in your version of 10.5.6 - please update immediately to the supplemental update. Build 19G2021 should fix this issue.

Not just the supplemental update is needed, but Supplemental Update 2.

  • so your suggesting this is a "global" problem with apples software? and not my specific system? How did you see this problem in your specific system?

the "locationd" errors are due to "uninstalling" applications and needing to "manually" remove them from apple security infrastructure.

for example, if you no longer use a "weather" app and uninstall it but have authorized it with "location security" you still need to remove it from apple settings. here are some screen shots of what this looks like...

and then "manually" remove it... (unfortunately removing the app into the "trash" isn't all thats needed for many many applications?)

enter image description here

NOTE: there are "other" bugs.. however this was one... it maybe a general apple OS security flaw with uninstalling applications on MacOS that use "location services" demons?? :(
