Avira Stops PC Viruses from Spreading via Mac
"Releases Mac Security Software FREE for Everyone "
IT security expert Avira announced today the release of Avira Free Mac Security software. The software is available for free download to the expanding universe of Mac owners.
Avira has made Avira Free Mac Security truly free for everyone - private consumers, professionals and even businesses - without exception and without any advertising or marketing pop-ups. As the worldwide market share of Mac has significantly increased, the malware threats targeting Mac OS have increased, also, so Mac users are inadvertently spreading Windows viruses in heterogeneous computing environments.
"Here at Avira's security labs we're seeing more viruses, worms and Trojans designed specifically for Mac, and also more Macs transporting Windows viruses when they collaborate with PCs, mobile devices and other hardware," explained Travis Witteveen, COO of Avira. "Starting today, we're stopping Windows viruses from creeping onto your Mac, as well as disabling the malware that is intended just for Mac. And we are giving away Avira Free Mac Security to everyone so that we can all live free, no matter what OS religion you may follow."
