Good find!
Did you read the associated blog about that software? Looks like a very recent threat...
says that Birdminer app might come with a download for a cracked version of Ableton Live 10. (Does that sound familiar? :cool: )
Sometimes - "free" downloads - there's free "gifts" included ...

Yes!! I did download ableton live 10 cracked version and since then I guess my computer has been running weird! but now after purchasing an official ableton license + delete the malware with malwarebytes, my fans no longer are going crazy! Woohoo! Success! This forum rocks <3

Just updated to Mojave 10.14.6 on a Late 2012 Mac Mini. I'm unable to locate the underscan slider.
System Preferences/Desktop is traditionally where I have gone to look but it's not there. I have a ViewSonic VX2753MH-LED and pressing the option key lights up the "Detect Displays" button on the lower right and it correctly identifies the monitor as VX2753. If I choose "scaled" under Resoultion, I'm given a dropdown with four choices and it correctly identifies mine as 1080p. Changing to the other settings doesn't help.
Can anyone help me adjust underscan so that my Menu Bar can be seen?

If you hold the Option key while clicking the "Scaled" button, you will see other resolution choices appear.
(I don't know how to turn on the overscan setting, if it is not already showing)

I hadn't realized that but you are correct. It does present additional resolutions. I have stepped through each one and none provide a solution.
640 X 480 does finally reveal the menu bar along the top but it obviously is at an unacceptable resolution. My 1080p monitor should be able to be adjusted to display all of the active window. Using 1080p now I lose about 10% of all borders.

Which video connection are you using on your Viewsonic?
I assume that you have been using HDMI, but have you tried switching to the VGA? (That might make the difference to show the overscan option)

You're correct. I have been using HDMI. I will try VGA when I get home this evening.

Post your comments or issues here.
Quite a while back I used a Terminal code I believe that came from this site that allowed me to type in and run a command that turned off my OS software updates that kept telling me to update to Catalina. Now I am trying to update to Catalina but keep getting the alert that my Mojave is updated to the highest version. Is there a Terminal command you or this forum has available that I can type in to turn that back on? I believe that is my problem since I cannot load and update to the current version of 10.14.5. I am on a 2017 iMac so I know this is capable of running the system. Thank you for any help.

1) Can't you just go to Apple or the Apple store to download Catalina?

2) FWIW, I still have not updated due to a few 32 bit apps I do not want to loose. For awhile I was irritated that bright red 1 was in my dock where my System Preferences alias is. A week or so ago, it finally just disappeared. Irritation solved! :)
