HI

I could only find a post dated 2008 regarding this topic.
I was wondering if there was any updates regarding needing to get antivirus for mac.

Thanks

Despite the fact I can almost guarantee a load of people following this reply stating otherwise.... NO- you don't need it. Yes there are a few reports around, but ignore them.

I've been running the same system for five years with absolutely no protection and no issues. I've tried to get a Mac virus: it's not going to happen.

My work PCs, on the other hand...

Anti virus software causes more problem then it will ever find on a Mac.

Avoid it.
