Question: ZipCloud

Hello!

I just updated to OS X Yosemite on my iMac!

And this application ZipCloud appeared on my applications in Finder.

When I tried to click on it ,it said "You can't open the application "ZipCloud" because it may be damaged or incomplete".

What do I do?

How I fix that?

I am really concerned about this!

iMac, OS X Yosemite (10.10), Intel Quad-Core i7 2.93GHz 8GB 2TB

Answer:
Answer:

Do a google search on ZipCloud. You'll see it an app for an online back up service. Reinstall from there.

"ZipCloud" is some sort of cloud-storage service with a doubtful reputation. The OS X client is sometimes distributed along with the "SearchProtect" malware. Although ZipCloud may not be malicious itself, it should be deemed suspect by virtue of the company it keeps.

To remove ZipCloud, start by backing up all data (not with ZipCloud itself, of course.)

Quit the application, if it's running, and drag it from the Applications folder to the Trash.

Triple-click anywhere in the line below on this page to select it:

~/Library/LaunchAgents/com.jdibackup.ZipCloud.autostart.plist

Right-click or control-click the highlighted line and select

Services Reveal in Finder (or just Reveal)

from the contextual menu.* A folder should open with an item selected. Move the selected item to the Trash. Log out or restart the computer and empty the Trash.

*If you don't see the contextual menu item, copy the selected text to the Clipboard by pressing the key combination command-C. In the Finder, select

Go Go to Folder...

from the menu bar and paste into the box that opens by pressing command-V. You won't see what you pasted because a line break is included. Press return.

Thank you. I suspect I wound up with zip cloud because I started to download a program from google that would allow me to access my mac remotely. As soon as I saw the ad or windows for zip cloud, chrome, and other google stuff I knew I was tricked. I got rid of all the "junk" except for the trickery from google.

Good...it sounds like this application is suspect at best per Linc's post above. I'd recommend following Linc's instructions in this thread to remove all traces of ZipCloud if I found it on any of my machines.
