Resource: Keep your computer clean with ClamAV
Being part of the WWW also means putting your system at risk. There are many antivirus programs available - but which one is the best? After having used several different programs, we recommend ClamAV.
Clam “provides a high performance mutli-threaded scanning daemon, command line utilities for on demand file scanning, and an intelligent tool for automatic signature updates.” What does this mean? - It will thoroughly scan your system for any malware and get rid of it.
Yes, ok - we don’t often get viruses. But that doesn’t mean OSX is invincible. Few viruses have been known to crawl into systems - and for that we recommend you use ClamXav. It is a free antivirus software for Mac OSX, and it uses ClamAV’s popular open-source antivirus engine.
