VirusBarrier X5 10.5.5 out

Intego says it has posted a v10.5.5 update for VirusBarrier X5, its signature anti-virus software. The app is claimed to be the only one capable scanning iPhone and iPod touch volumes, as well as those on Macs. The v10.5.5 patch improves the performance of manual as well as automatic real-time scans; in the latter case, special attention has been paid to Samba sharing volumes.

Handling of FileVault volumes has been improved, and repairs can now be performed on files that are technically inaccessible, so long as authentication has been performed. Users of v10.5.5 should also notice various bug fixes, and "enhanced management" of the Quarantine Zone. VirusBarrier X5 costs $70, and runs on Mac OS X 10.4 or later. The patch is a free download through NetUpdate.

    is it just me or is intego's site dead?

    Top page goes to one of the generic search sites that claim to be the site you're after, and the sub-pages are all blank.

    iPhone/iPod? Why?

    "The app is claimed to be the only one capable scanning iPhone and iPod touch volumes".

    Um, yeah, there's a very good reason for that - there's absolutely no need to do so whatsoever. Furthermore, the only people who are able to access the file system on those devices is Apple, so if this AV can do so, then they're presumably hacking the iPhone/iPod OS in some way. Thanks, but no thanks.
