Back in the day, an Apple iTunes updater script deleted all files on some drives due to missing quote marks:I want to know what Google was smoking that would cause an application updater, even by accident, to unlink /var. That's like deleting the kernel. Things like that don't happen "by accident", and I would like to know what they thought they were trying to do.
As for testing, it also proves that Google doesn't check error logs as a part of their alleged test process. Looking at the screenshot on the MrMacintosh site, we can see that SIP logged a sandbox violation at the attempt. Clearly, Google either didn't look at the system log or they ignored the error.
