I am having a problem with my 2018 MacBook PRO. On opening from sleep or starting up a window opens asking: "DataQuest requests permission to connect to the net". I have always denied permission but it persists. I have looked at running processes in activity monitor and found 2 entries running:
DataQuest and DataQuest DAMEON, both owned by root. I have tried force quitting the processes but they also instantly reappear.
My questions are:
—What is it? What is its function?
—How do I get rid of it in the event that it is malevolent ?
Thanks for any insights,
