This software is a con. It 'scans' your system, finds non-existent threats and then charges you for the privilege of cleaning non-existent problems.

This is malware
We've just found the first Mac rogue application and it's called MacSweeper. It claims to clean your Mac from compromising files and it will always find something to fix/clean but the only way to do so is to buy the program. [...] '
Rogue/fake applications (scareware) such as this have been around for years on Windows (WinFixer, SpySheriff, et cetera). They're designed to trick people into thinking that they have security problems and that the only way to solve it is to buy the software. Up until now this has been a Windows only problem but that's not the case anymore.
