taking for a spin: tools for The Five 8s

Time to protect our Macs


Mac users generally do not worry about viruses and malware. But since more and more are becoming Mac converts, the possibility of worms being designed to affect Macs is also increasing. Just a week ago, the trojan Boonana or Koobface surfaced and infected some machines. It takes control of social network accounts and attempts to spread itself by sending spam messages using your username. The trojan has been known to spread through Facebook, Twitter MySpace and email. Windows users are also not spared.

Sophos Anti-Virus, a known enterprise-level software brand, is giving away their Sophos Anti-Virus for Mac Home Edition for free. Maybe this is a way for them to break into the individual/user-level market. Download the free Sophos here.
