'hpRaster.bundle Will Damage Your Computer' Error

computer error

Mac error messages may often sound scarier than they should. Some users report that they saw a 'hpRaster.bundle Will Damage Your Computer' Error message after applying a recent update to their Mac. Of course, this message does sound like a very serious issue, but we assure you that there is nothing to be worried about. The component cited in the error, hpRaster.bundle, is part of HP's driver package for Macs. You see it because you either use or have used an HP-made peripheral recently – and its drivers are still present on your Mac.

But why does this message show all of a sudden? Usually, the error occurs after a system update, because the HP drivers have still not had their certificate updated to match the operating system's latest version. Because of this, Mac mistakenly detects hpRaster.bundle for a potentially dangerous application. This false positive can be ignored, but you may see the error message again soon – to resolve this, you should update your HP drivers manually by fetching the latest version from their website.

If the issue persists and there is no update available, then you might want to consider temporarily uninstalling HP drivers, so that you will not see the 'hpRaster.bundle Will Damage Your Computer' warning.
