Apple sends information about every binary file on MacOS to their central servers

It was found that on Apple’s MacOS operating system information about each executed binary file is logged and sent to their central servers. Which gives the company a deep insight about the user’s system usage without their consent.

The company can claim this is a security measure but at the least it should be an optional choice for the user and not a secret option enabled by default within the system.
