I hesitate to write this, mainly because I fear the response, but does anyone who owns a Mac actually use any anti-virus software?
I ask because Kaspersky Labs have told InfoWorld they had readied a prototype anti-virus package for the Mac and could launch it "within days", if needed.
Is it me, or does that sound unnecessarily alarmist? Almost as if, they are expecting a tidal wave of Mac viruses.
Interestingly enough Eugene Kaspersky, co-founder and head of anti-virus research at Kaspersky, predicted a "significant rise" in Mac viruses back in April 2007.
Has it happened? Not yet....
Symantec and McAfee both sell anti-virus software for Macs. So does anyone have any anti-virus software installed on their Macs?
I don't on my machines. So am I smug and stupid or smug and wise?
