Are you getting the “HPM1210_1130Raster.bundle will damage your computer” error on your Mac? If you’re using an HP Printer and you get this error notification, you don’t have to worry because it does not mean your computer is infected by malware. This detection is an issue caused by Apple’s built-in anti-malware, which means that certain software certificates are already outdated.
What Is HPM1210_1130Raster.bundle Will Damage Your Computer Error?
This issue started when HP accidentally withdrew support for older driver versions on Mac computers. A few months ago, HP asked Apple to revoke its printer driver code-signing certificates. It appears this request backfired as it left users unable to print. According to an HP spokesperson:
“We unintentionally revoked credentials on some older versions of Mac drivers. This caused a temporary disruption for those customers and we are working with Apple to restore the drivers. In the meantime, we recommend users experiencing this problem to uninstall the HP driver and use the native AirPrint driver to print to their printer.”
Even though HP has released a new driver to fix the issue, which can be found here, HP and Mac users are still plagued by various printing errors, including the “HPM1210_1130Raster.bundle will damage your computer” issue.
Aside from this error, here’s a list of other problems related to this issue:

How to Fix HPM1210_1130Raster.bundle Will Damage Your Computer
The first thing you need to do when you get this error is disconnect your HP printer from your Mac and reboot. Next, reconnect the printer cable and turn on your Mac to see if the error has been fixed. You should also try updating your printer driver using a driver updater. If this doesn’t work, install the patch mentioned earlier that was released by HP to specifically this error.
If the problem still pops up, these are the options you can try:
Solution 1: Use AirPrint.
If the HP app does not allow you to print, you can use AirPrint instead. No need to install any driver. As long as your Mac and printer are connected to the same Wi-Fi network, you can print your documents wirelessly.
To use AirPrint, follow the steps here:
- Open the document you want to print then click File from the top menu.
- Choose Print.
- In the Printer menu, scroll down to Nearby Printers, then choose AirPrint.
- Customize all print settings, then click Print.
Solution 2: Reinstall the HP Driver.
Before you do this, you need to uninstall the HP printer driver by dragging it to the Trash and removing the HP folder that contains all files associated with the printer. After completely uninstalling the printer, disconnect it from your Mac and restart.
Next, connect the printer to your Mac. You will get a pop up dialog that says:
Would you like to download and install software for “HP”?
This means that macOS has detected that it does not have the appropriate driver for the HP printer. Just click Install to let macOS find and install the correct driver for you.
Solution 3: Reinstall the Printer Driver Manually.
If macOS is not able to find the correct driver, you can manually reinstall the HP driver instead. To do this:
- Go to Finder and search for the /Library/Printers/hp folder.
- Delete the entire folder.
- Delete the HP printer under System Preferences > Printers and Scanners.
- Install HewlettPackardPrinterDrivers.dmg from these links:
- Next, connect your printer and add it back in System Preferences > Printers and Scanners.
