This update addresses the recent Mac malware which poses as a virus scanner/removal tool in an effort to obtain a user's credit card information. The new security update includes a definition list that will be automatically checked daily against any new malware or virus threats. Further details about the security update may be found here.
The new software update is available for Mac OS 10.6 users from Software Update Utility located under the Apple menu or by download here.
Keane recommends that all 10.6 Snow Leopard users run a full bootable clone/backup and install this important software update as soon as possible.
Currently there is no security update for users of earlier versions of Mac OS X -- 10.5 Leopard, 10.4 Tiger, 10.3 Panther or 10.2 Jaguar. Mac users of these versions of Mac OS X that are affected by the MacDefender malware may contact us or call us 415.835-9800 for assistance.
