I keep seeing a Mac popup that says:

You don't have permission to use the application "system_profiler".

I am using a mid-2011 iMac running El Capitan (10.11.6).

How do I fix the permission issue?

    Are you doing something that involves the system_profiler command-line tool (or possibly the System Information app)? If not, it's possible you have some malware that's trying to use it to gather information about your system, and you do not want to give it permission. So the first question is, what's triggering this? Sep 13 at 21:11
