Mac Antivirus: Intego Virus Barrier, Net Barrier Save 30%
Yet another Java security vulnerability has people on the web, including Mac users, running a little scared. Whereas Oracle has issued a partial fix and OS X’s integrated XProtect malware blocker have the issue covered, more than a few of the rest of us are using a Mac antivirus app just in case.
I’ve been using the free and open source-based ClamXav for years — it runs nightly and occasionally finds PC malware or phishing heuristics in an email. Nothing to worry about, yet I feel better for having it around nonetheless.
That said, some folks prefer commercial software and Intego is running a 30 percent off special VirusBarrier + NetBarrier bundles.
To the Internet, your Mac is just an IP address and open ports. You carry your digital life around on your Mac and the last thing you want is the bad guys to get it. Start protecting your digital life now with Intego: the first award-winning Apple security company.
To get the discount, use coupon code MAC2013 at checkout. Alternately, if you would like a taste first, get VirusBarrier Express for free on the Mac App Store.
And, for what it’s worth VirusBarrier for iOS ($0.99) is also available.
