Why does ZeroTier need access to System Events on Apple Silicon?

I recently updated my mac to apple silicon. When I installed ZeroTier it said that it needed access to control “System Events”; I do not recall this being required on my previous laptop (same OS version). I am running macOS Monterey (12.2).

Because it uses AppleScript (osascript) as part of the installer. Use that, and you need the “System Events” access

Interesting. I tried denying it and it seemed to install and connect just fine.
