How do I resolve the error "pantherlog cannot be opened because the developer cannot be verified"?

Issue

When trying to run pantherlog, I get an error on my Mac saying "pantherlog cannot be opened because the developer cannot be verified. macOS cannot verify that this app is free from malware"

Resolution

To resolve this, you can remove the quarantine restriction on the application via the following CLI command:

sudo xattr -r -d com.apple.quarantine /path/to/pantherlog

Cause

This is a common issue on Macs due to running programs that were downloaded online.
