    "Mac users - A necessity!"

    January 23, 2013  |   By Jim Babcock


    Extremely small footprint


    Issues with quarantine of emails


    I have used ClamXav since 2005. Mark Allan, a very talented Scot, designed and developed this UI to the open source clamav. I use it so that I will never forward any file that contains a Mac or PC signature to a friend . Plus, my iMac is Malware-free at all times no matter where I roam.

    I suggest getting the Web site version that includes Sentry (not available in App Store), a 24/7 watcher of ANY file I or any app might download!

    I also use an optional email script that scans every message + attachment BEFORE it is loaded into my Inbox.
