Protect Your Mac for FREE with ClamXav

Mac machines are by nature better protected from viruses than PC Windows’ machines. But, you never know what may be hitch-hiking on files these days — and virus creators/hackers are always experimenting. ClamXav, a FREE Mac utility application, is a great little behind-the-scenes app that will help you easily scan all your files, on your terms. This app is developed using the ClamXav open source antivirus engine and is updated everyday, all for FREE — you must be kidding me!
