Technomedia reports tell us that a large percentage of Windows PCs malware—viruses, trojans, worms—come from Eastern Europe, specifically Russia. Even though there are no in-the-wild viruses on the Mac, from Russia with love comes the cure for the virus plague that doesn’t exist.
Now Mac users can protect their systems from malicious objects using the Russian anti-virus that incorporates cutting-edge technologies created by Doctor Web.
Wanna bet that Dr. Web knows some of the very people who actually make viruses, trojans, and worms?
Mac OS X was considered immune to viruses and other malicious program and since the number of its users was relatively small, it didn’t attract attention of virus makers. So the illusion was upheld. However, popularity of Mac OS X is growing among users as well as cyber-criminals. Today a reliable anti-virus protecting a Mac from malware has become a necessity.
So, if I understand this correctly, Dr. Web has a solution for a problem that does not really exist, a cure for a disease that no one has. Where’s the list of what it does and what it cures?
Dr. Web anti-virus for Mac detects and neutralizes viruses, spyware, adware, hacking tools, paid dialers and jokers targeting MAC OS X as well as malware written for other platforms.
