Staff Pick: ClamXav

There used to be a time when Mac owners could laud the platform's lack of viruses and trojans. These days, however, Mac users are seeing more and more exploits and other malware being developed, and as such keeping ahead of the malware developers is a must.

In past articles covering trojans and other exploits, we have recommended Mac users install various antivirus and other malware detectors, and one well known one is ClamXav, which is an antivirus program based around the popular open-source ClamAV antivirus engine. Unlike many other antivirus packages, ClamXav is fairly simple and is not known to have incompatibilities and problems with other software you may have installed. Whether worried about Mac viruses and trojans or Windows malware, ClamXav is a program to check out.

The program has recently been updated to version 1.1.1e951, and can be downloaded from the ClamXav website.
