Get Rid of the Google Earth Updater Dialog in Mac OS X

Did you mysteriously start getting what look like a malware popup in Mac OS X for Google Earth—software you might have forgotten you ever installed? 

Updated: I‘ve written a more detailed article about this that’s now up at Macworld.

(Note that's two hyphens before “nuke.”)

./Library/Google/GoogleSoftwareUpdate/GoogleSoftwareUpdate.bundle/Contents/Resources/ksinstall --nuke
