Mac OS X Snow Leopard to have built-in anti-virus

Posted on Wednesday, August 26 2009 @ 15:29:02 CEST by

OS News reports Apple's Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard comes with built-in anti-virus functionality.
With Apple's Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard operating system arriving on people's doorsteps over the coming weekend, you'd think that all the new features are known by now, and there will be no more major surprises. Well, that's not entirely true: on Intego's Mac Security Blog, it is reported that Snow Leopard comes with anti-virus/malware functionality built-in.

Update: Snow Leopard testers on MacRumors confirmed the functionality. How, exactly, it works, is not yet known, however.

The Intego blogs talks about "reports we've seen" which state Snow Leopard comes with anti-virus/malware functionality built-in, and also provides a screenshot of how it looks. This dialog appeared after downloading a file through Safari, and the operating system detected the RSPlug trojan.
