The new version 7.2 of the McAfee / Network Associates anti-virus available for members of the .Mac community, free of charge.

It is sufficient to log in and then download the file (4.5 MB) which is useful in the online update function for new viruses, called eUpdate.

Virex 7.2 (engine version 4160 and written in Cocoa) works with Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X 10.1.3 (not in Classic mode) and later on a G3 of at least 300 MHz, just install it and authenticate it with the user and password of the subscription to .Mac.

You will then be asked for the computer administrator password and the software will search for any resident viruses; we calculated not exactly short times to thoroughly check an entire 10 GB disk (about 4 hours) but the result seems very good.

(update) In the last few hours, some users noticed a serious malfunction in combination with another software: Fink, both the McAfee programmers and the independent developers of the Open Source package report serious incompatibilities and damage to the components of the two programs. currently there are no viable solutions, except to avoid the concurrent installation of Fink and Virex; in the meantime, the programmers of the two sides are busy working to propose a solution and users will be informed as soon as it is available.
