Heads Up……… Macdefender

20 May

There is a new Trojan doing the round for OS X, currently going under the name of “MacDefender”, however that name is likely to change once people become more aware that the application is a trojan.

Just a tip, try to steer clear of ANY AV program for OS X that has not been on the market for at-least a year and for which you cannot find decent balanced reviews.
Yes it is true that most of the AV programs for mac suck stronger than a Dyson vacuum cleaner, but that is not an excuse to go mad and download a program just because it is ‘new’, let some other moron download and test it first.
