When looking at entitlements on pycharm CE for macOS, it shows many serious security exceptions. Here are its entitlements:


Why does pycharm uses such lax security? Is it necessary?

I tried to look into pycharm's source code, and I saw this commit:

Add macOS notarization script

GitOrigin-RevId: e8779699a5c41df82848b335a3aed82b7550c7eb

VladRassokhin authored and intellij-monorepo-bot committed on Jun 5, 2019 commit 631c91b


But I couldn't find a clear reason why pycharm would need these security gaps. Can anyone with knowledge of pycharm's code can shed light on this?
