Sydney, December 16 2008:

"PC Tools today announced the release of iAntiVirus Version 1.0, a light-weight anti-virus and anti-spyware tool, designed specifically for the Mac operating system. Providing real-time protection and comprehensive system scanning, iAntiVirus is designed to detect and remove Mac specific threats ensuring your Mac remains safe.

"While the Mac has a solid reputation for remaining relatively threat free, the Mac community has been very receptive to the BETA launch of iAntiVirus with over 250,000 downloads from the iAntiVirus website and is the #1 Antivirus download for Mac OS on Download.com, the world's largest download site. iAntiVirus is also currently listed as a "top download" on the Apple website" said Simon Clausen, Vice President, PC Tools."

Interesting. I might check it out. I don't really see "true need" for myself at least as I was AV free on Windows for years, but then again, I'm not the "average user". ;)

If your behind a router and your os is up to date there are only about three of the 90 threats to worry about. And if you don't open things you didn't download you pretty much don't have to worry about them either.
