  • Snow Leopard Comes with Antivirus?


    It appears the Snow Leopard due this Friday could come complete with a Virus/Malware scanner built in. There are zero details about how this works but The Mac Security Blog reports that the screen shot above is Snow Leopard detecting the RSPlug Trojan horse downloaded via Safari. Maybe this is Apple's response to the trojan that was packaged with some iWork '09 downloads back in January.

    @ Apple fanboys - Yes OS X is vulnerable to viruses and malware. These will increase as OS X continues to gain market share.

    @ Windows zealots - Yes OS X is susceptible to viruses and malware, there are just 10000000000000000 times more made for Windows.

    Update via The Register:
    Apple has only included information on two Trojan Horses, OSX.RSPlug.A and OSX.Iservice inside a system file
    /System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources/XProtect.plist
