Apple silently updates Gatekeeper data

Apple has today updated the Gatekeeper Configuration Data on Macs running El Capitan, to version 96, dated 23 August 2016.

I’d hazard a guess that, among other things, this revokes the developer certificate being used by PCVARK for its latest piece of malware or at least unwanted software, dubbed Mac File Opener or OSX.FakeFileOpener – of which more in a few moments.

I have updated the list of current versions of silently updated files here.
