I am trying to uninstall Kaspersky Endpoint Security on my mac.I tried :

sudo "/Library/Application Support/Kaspersky Lab/KAV/Binaries/UninstallScript"

But its displaying a prompt to enter root password which will timeout after 2 mins.Is there a way to uninstall  Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Mac from terminal without waiting for the timeout?

Hello Rasheeth,

The user password request for sudo is a Mac OS requirement, not a specific limitation on the Kaspersky removal. There are ways to remove the requirement and that is a operation within the MacOS. However, that operation is a bad think from a security perspective. Did you try the remote uninstallation task via the Kaspersky Security Center?  Please refer to our online guide for KES for mac below:
