Error message says

Dyld Error Message: Symbol not found: ____chkstk_darwin Referenced from: /Applications/Wireshark.app/Contents/MacOS/../Frameworks/libgcrypt.20.dylib (which was built for **Mac OS X 11.0**) Expected in: /usr/lib/libSystem.B.dylib

you are running OS 10..?

To fix the problem

open and run the “Uninstall ChmodBPF” package, then open and run “Install ChmodBPF” in order to reset the ChmodBPF Launch Daemon

  • The crash report statement that it was made for MacOS X 11.0 is not true! The wireshark download centre states wireshark 3.6.21 is for Macos 10. A 3rd Party is gaining remote access to the MacBook and presumably is responsible for creating that misleading statement! Commented Mar 3 at 5:26
