    Hello, I have just been listening to an iMore podcast and they mentioned about Malwear on your Mac..... about scanning the computer! Is there something I am able to download to scan and remove or even block any malwear? I understand some of the security comes down to common sense on what I click on and pages I visit but any extra help can only be a good thing!!

    Thanks in advance and sorry if this is a old topic for alot of people.

    In addition its got all to do with UNIX,,, and how Apple doesn't apple users access to folders being the big player.

    You still need to know what u'r doing, as your not all safe, but not as much is needed on the users part, because Apple protects us users. and UNIX as well.. Plus Apple keeps their anti-mallware up to date in the background..

    You also don't need anti-malware/A/V because if u must trust software to protect you, your doing something wrong.
