After creating the SEPRemote.pkg with Symantec Endpoint Protection 14.2 RU2 or later Mac installer files, during the deployment process, the operating system displays a warning that the "UninstallerTool will damage your computer".


The UninstallerTool that is placed within the SEPRemote.pkg for SEP 14.2 RU2 or 14.2 RU2-MP1 is not notarized for use on macOS 10.15.x.
