questioning the value of anti-virus software on Macs
Authored by: sjk on Sep 29, '05 05:29:46PM

I agree. The only Windows viruses on my Macs have come through spam and are always effectively quarantined by SpamAssassin alone.

Unless a Mac is somehow a redistribution point for Windows viruses, or until an OS X virus exists in the wild, it seems unnecessary to run anti-virus software on it. And I expect news about the first OS X virus will propagate faster than an anti-virus update for it.
