I recently upgraded tweedeck. When I close tweetdeck now I get a UAC prompt from wyUpdate program by wyDay:

enter image description here

I can't find anything official on this. Is this legitimate? Can someone point me to some official twitter or tweetdeck source that mentions this?

It's just strange I can't find anything official on this anywhere.

I do believe it is legitimate. I get those updates from time to time as well. I do notice significant changes to my tweetdeck after it updates the program and I don't get any residual slow downs or other changes to my computer.

Here's some information about wyUpdate (wyDay): (explains what it is) (some FAQ's)


Also, since the TweetDeck release notes for v2.0.1 mentions wyUpdate by name, I think we can decisively conclude that it is legitimate software.

Appreciate the feedback but still looking for something official or at least more of a consensus. – User Nov 1 '12 at 20:26
Based on the TweetDeck release notes for v2.0.1 which mentions wyUpdate by name, I'd conclude that yes, it is legitimate. – Ben Richards Nov 1 '12 at 20:31
