Mac malware
Authored by: excarnate on Apr 12, '12 10:08:31AM

Just as with Android, I don't load antivirus/antimalware software unless it can actually do something useful for me.

For the latest, updating Java resolves that. The antivirus software I see for the Mac only protects against threats that are resolved, either by software patches or by normal caution (use NoScript, AdBlock, Flash Block, BetterPrivacy plugins; read email in plaintext and don't automatically show 'images'; use the firewall (I even use Little Snitch); et cetera).

So far, the antivirus/antimalware software for Macs and for Androids doesn't really do much, if anything, for me.
