McAfee launches anti-virus solution for Mac OS X

Posted on Sunday, May 07 2006 @ 03:08:16 CEST by


Anti-virus firm McAfee has launched a new security suite for Mac OS X systems. The firm says Mac OS X is just as vulnerable as other operating systems, but admits that there isn't a significant risk to Mac users at the moment.
McAfee launched the product on Friday, and claimed that the Apple Mac OS X is "just as vulnerable" as other operating systems to targeted malware attacks.

To back up this statement, McAfee cited the release in March of a patch that fixed twenty vulnerabilities in OS X. But although a proof-of-concept worm that targeted the OS X platform was also discovered earlier this year, many more flaws were discovered in Microsoft products over the same period.

McAfee admitted that Mac users were at "no significant risk" at the moment. But the security vendor also claimed that if the OS X user base expands — thanks to the popularity of the iPod and the new range of Intel-powered Mac — then it will become a more tempting target for organised criminals.
More details over here.
