Malware detection list updated

12. December 2013 Security 1

A small update to include the newest AV for Mac; AVG AntiVirus for Mac. I had high hopes for AVG as it is my AV of choice for Windows but for Mac it does not do too well. It’s debut detection rate was 59%, putting it behind McAfee even. AVG for Mac has no controls apart from the ability to enable the scanning of archived files. No scheduled scanning, no heuristics, no automatic cleanup. It’s a very basic AV.

The latest PDF can be found ==> here <== and includes no updates for any of the other products.
