Apple Acknowledges OS X Malware

Apple has finally acknowledged that spyware and viruses are a threat for Mac OS X, as well as the latest operating system in the works, Snow Leopard. Snow Leopard will be adding new technology to help prevent against attacks such as sandboxing and anti-phishing features in Safari. This, however, is not a 100% solution to protect against malware.

We applaud Apple for recognizing that Macs are not immune to malware, as it contradicts their TV commercials which attack their counter-parts by implying Macs are completely secure. However, it is important to recognize that these new technologies in the operating system will not protect against all threats.

From Apple’s website: ‘The Mac is designed with built-in technologies that provide protection against malicious software and security threats right out of the box. However, since no system can be 100 percent immune from every threat, antivirus software may offer additional protection.’

To take it a step further, many anti-virus companies do not protect against the latest spyware threats, and only focus on viruses. Those who do claim to protect against malware do not protect against the latest threats or commercially available spyware applications — charging subscription fees while not fully protecting users against malware. This is where MacScan comes in to offer protection as we have been since 2005 with our fast loading, clean and intuitive software for one flat rate.

MacScan protects against the latest spyware threats to Mac OS X, including trojan horses and keyloggers. MacScan goes a step further, and manages privacy concerns such as tracking cookies and web files that may contain personal or confidential information. MacScan identifies threats to your security and privacy, and allows you to quickly remove the threats from your system.

SecureMac at MacWorld 2008

MacScan team at MWSF08Over the past three years, we have noted a drastic change in security education among Mac OS X users.  When we first started promoting MacScan, our anti-spyware utility, at MacWorld San Francisco, we found confusion to surround the issue of security for many users.  While many users appreciated the proactive approach to security we provided with MacScan, there were an equal number of users who were under the impression that Macs were completely immune to spyware and security threats, and were quite adamant in their beliefs!  As the years have passed, we have seen a new trend in security education for OS X, with users taking security much more seriously as new threats are introduced to OS X and the media covers these issues.

MacScan has also evolved over the years to ensure protection against the latest spyware threats, added support to detect over 8000 blacklisted cookies, and added new features such as the ability to schedule automated scans.

As more people learn about Mac security, we’ve realized that households are now looking to protect more than one computer.  In response to this new demand, we are pleased to announce the release of our Family Pack pricing.  With the MacScan Family Pack, you can protect up to three computers for $49.99, a savings of over 44%.

To receive our latest news, advisories, incentives and deals, be sure to join our mailing list.  This past year, we gave out exhibit hall passes to MacWorld, so don’t miss out — join today!
