Sparkle trashed my RW6

Following a routine update to my website, Sparkle suddenly appeared and automatically updated something – trashing RW6. Had to reinstall RW6 from a backup and it trashed it again. Updated to the latest Beta to fix. Is Sparkle damage limited to just RW? Or should I reformat my entire hard drive and reinstall a backup? Experts: please advise!

It might well be that RapidWeaver prompted you to update, and it was installing a RW update?

Which version of RW are you using? 6.3.8 launched today.

6.37 was the version I had.

Which version are you using now?

None. I am restoring from a Time Machine backup. It has 6.37

Was the Sparkle update automatic to the next version or malware?

We don’t have any automatic updates to RapidWeaver. The only case in which an update would be installed would be if a prompt appeared in RapidWeaver, and detailed the version that is available to be downloaded and installed.


Looks like malware then. Good thing I am restoring.

Looks like your update was a bit late for protecting us.
