im on windows 10 . my girlfriend was running macbook pro and i phone 5 and latest imac .. i plugged my android phone into imac and my phone just self distructed. since then my emails, banking , photos any of my saved data has disappeared
Mac Support Specialist: John T. F., Apple Consultant replied 2 years ago

Ok,

Well in regard to the concern the Mac may be hacked, going off the snippet of log data you sent it is not a worry.

Jetsam is a shared system function that monitors memory use under Apple's OS X and iOS. It keeps track of processes on the respective devices, to monitor for situations where you are running out of free RAM and will killed unneeded tasks free up memory. It also keeps an eye out for processes that are using too much RAM.

The error message you see specifically is because the code is shared between OS X and iOS, as mentioned previously, BUT the "DirtyJetsamMemoryLimit" key is only available on iOS devices, not Macs. SO it's completely harmless.

she cant use an apple app or device to hack my email or android devices?
Mac Support Specialist: John T. F., Apple Consultant replied 2 years ago

Are you asking if she could INTENTIONALLY use her computer to hack your Android device?

with cloud magic or an app as she is and has been very secretive with her apple stuff and since we have been together i have lost alot
Mac Support Specialist: John T. F., Apple Consultant replied 2 years ago

Ok, well just plugging your phone into her Mac would not automatically cause it to be hacked. Additionally, the Mac has no apps that come with it to do things to an Android device by fault. If you believe her to be an expert at programming, hacking, etc then it's always a possibility but this is not something that can be easily done by the average person. She would also need a lot of alone time with your phone and know personal details such as passwords, etc...

However, nothing you've sent indicates this is the case.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
