[Carbon Black Cloud] New macOS sensor file paths beginning in 3.5.1.19

[Carbon Black Cloud] New macOS sensor file paths beginning in 3.5.1.19

Environment

Supported sensor versions: 3.5.1.19 and later
Supported OS versions: macOS 10.12 and later

 

Overview

In the 3.5.1.19 macOS Carbon Black Cloud sensor release, we’ve updated the sensor’s file structure to align with additional notarization guidelines recommended by Apple. 

Pre-3.5.1.19 sensors kept all executables and resources at: /Applications/Confer.app/

3.5.1.19 introduces two main directories for where files are stored:

Sensor resources: /Library/Application Support/com.vmware.carbonblack.cloud/

Sensor executables: /Applications/VMware Carbon Black Cloud/

 

File path changes

Below is a table on where important sensor resources have been moved:

Thanks for this, 

Question : Is there a way to Abstract (go back to Confer.app) the Sensor executables path, or move it out of the Applications root folder?
