Google Earth update pop-up3 Recommended Answers
Viet-Tam Luu may be a new name here, here, but I'll offer my credibility (if I have any...) that there is indeed a software engineer of many years by that name working on Google Earth (and has been for years) and this aspect specifically and that the Viet-Tam Luu I have lunch with from time to time writes and talks like the one above, so I'm pretty convinced that he's the Real Deal. He's not had a high public profile, but I'd be hard to catphish on this one.
In case I have no credibility, and you question that I'm the real deal, I'm also a developer on Earth and have been working with the group since about 2005. While I'm scarce in this group, check the byline of https://maps.googleblog.com/2009/02/explore-your-travels-with-gps-in-google.html The creator of GPSBabel, a post history of > 10 years on Earth-things (predating Keyhole's sale to Google) etc.
Googlerblemtoo, this shouldn't cause Finder to lose its mind. Finder does get annoyed if you eject the volume for the window you have open; it'll abruptly close the window, but it's still responsive to events like New Window, etc.
The Plugin has been effectively dead for a long time; it's not run on any viable browser in a while. Removing it is a good prescription.
We know that software claiming to be an installed app and asking for an admin password is bad. Having it happen late on a Friday is particularly bad. Sorry.
Had to do a restore both machines and then changed all passwords everywhere.
Do not take this lightly. If you added your password you have been phished.
