So possibly this is not harmful, but just to make a safe check.
About a month ago I installed Parrot 4.10 Security (KDE).
Since then I have received, once in a while, a small message box in the desktop asking if I want to run a system update, prompting for a password. I assumed it was by synaptic (it didnt have the default KDE look), but later realized that the synaptic interface uses a black background on the default Parrot installation. Anyhow, last time it happened: after I entered my password, it said everything was up to date. However, when running “sudo apt update && sudo apt dist-upgrade”, it began a long update process, so apparently the system was not up to date after all.
Anyone have an idea what prompts these messages and if it’s legit?
Unfortunately I do not have a screenshot at the moment.
Thanks in advance.
