I installed the 2017 Tex package earlier this year and I have managed to update using Tex Live Utility without any issues thus far.
I just lately installed Little Snitch and it flagged the mirror via wget.x86_64-darwin and the explanation was that the mirror does not have a valid signature whilst Tex Live Utility itself has a valid signature and so the rule requires a valid signature on both the process's.
Any suggestions as to how I should proceed?
I am on a iMac OS High Sierra Version 10.13.3
I edited the second paragraph and hopefully it is gives a better description of the issue than the unedited second paragraph did.
Here is the warning I got from Little Snitch:
TeX Live Utility via wget.x86_64-darwin want to connect to mirror.ctan.org
Caution: "wget.x86_64-darwin" has no code signature. The executable can be maliciously modified without being detected. The matching rule is therefore not being applied.
A matching rule exists that requires a valid code signature of "TeX Live Utility", but it does not explicitly specify a requirement for the via process(in this case, "wget.x86_64-darwin"). The rules is therefore only applied if the via process's signature is also valid.
TeX live Utility has a valid code signature, but "wget.x86_64-darwin" does not. The matching rule is therefore not applied.
I could write a new rule for TeX Live Utility via wget.x86_64-darwin that ignores any code signature but I am reluctant to do that since the Little Snitch warning is clear that, that would be less secure.
Not having sufficient confidence to overwrite the existing rule is maybe a reflection of my paranoia of corrupting my files and even my computer.
