    After installing the 10.13.6 update I noticed a process "YaraScanService" eating up lots of CPU and memory. I don't find much about it on the web, it seems to be some malware scanner. It is located in /System/Library/CoreServices/MRT.app/Contents/XPCServices. Does anybody know more about this process?

    This seems a common problem (although I am not affected personally).
    The process is legit and linked to Apple's Malware Removal Tool.
