MacScan 2.4 released

SecureMac has released MacScan 2.4, the latest revision of its anti-spyware package for Mac systems. The software detects, isolates, and removes spyware from Macs using both real-time spyware definition updating and unique detection methods. MacScan 2.4 includes several bug fixes and enhancements over the previous release, saving internet file cleaning selections for reuse on future scans. The update fixes the removal of Firefox tracking cookies, and enhances the removal of tracking cookies from all browsers. The upgrade is available for free to MacScan 2 license holders, requiring Mac OS X 10.2.4 or later. MacScan 2.4 is available for $25 to new users.

    Is it just me?

    Or does this seem like a solution looking for a problem?

    Wow!

    See, all you people out there who say there's no spyware on the mac. There's gots to be, because here's a tool that specifically says it removes all spyware from your mac!

    Then again, I'm sure I could write a tool to remove all spyware from a mac. A three line script will do it:

    %sh cat "Starting removal..." cat "Removal finished!"

    tigers

    Lisa: Dad, what if I were to tell you that this rock keeps away tigers? Homer: Uh-huh, and how does it work? Lisa: It doesn't work. It's just a stupid rock. Homer: I see. Lisa: But you don't see any tigers around, do you? Homer: (Looks around) Lisa, I'd like to buy your rock.

    someday...

    The more market share the Mac OS has, the more of a target it will become for geekdicks of the world. I certainly don't see much need for this product at the moment, but I'm glad that there are people out there keeping a solution ready. I just hope they're not relying on it as their sole source of income!
