Basically a link to their online tool. But it does send your computer information to them; might be sending more. As Bidule said it avoids little snitch.

Without previous warning, that app quickly shut down and open a browser page, you can see that datas were sent to Crucial !!! A manner to avoid LittleSnitch.
"The program relays the info through the crucial.com website" is the main sentence to notice.

If you observe what the program does: it first directs you to a page on your own hard disk. No information is sent to Crucial. If you click the continue button on that page, it directs you to Crucial. At this point it is sending the information using your web browser, which is why LittleSnitch doesn't complain (unless you haven't allowed your browser to send information).

Anyway, no need to panic that it is somehow evading LittleSnitch.

Should be named Crucial MacScanner since it links to the website site.... but for me it crashes and does not work. I have a mac pro 2008 which should work perfectly.

It is a beta. Maybe you should report your findings to crucial so they can improve the app.
