I don't think that the sky is falling quite yet. The first choice for this with two search engines is at - The page has one Comment/Review "TheSafeMac Jul 05, 2016 This is malware: OSX.Backdoor.Eleanor"

It will not install unless the user overwrites their "Security & Privacy" settings to allow installation of apps from anywhere instead of the default restricted setting.

A simple removal method is here. If you are as paranoid as I am, and still managed to install it, I would recommend the manual method instead of the one that requires a download!
