Free Virus Scanner Download for OSX

Free Virus Scanner for OSX
ClamXav is a free of charge virus checker for Mac OS X. It makes use of the tried, tested and very well liked ClamAV open source antivirus engine.

Accordingly, there is around 60 to 80 number of viruses that attacked Macintosh back in the days before OS X. At this moment, none of the viruses are actively attacking OS X users. However, we shouldn’t get complacent about web navigation, downloading, or simply open email attachments. As a matter of fact, there is no guarantee that Mac users are virus free. Moreover, I’m using VirtualPC that can still become infected and lose important document or data on our Mac

Please choose the correct download for your version of Mac OS X.
