VirusBarrier X5 update focuses on improved logging

updated 02:45 pm EDT, Wed May 6, 2009

VirusBarrier X5 update

Intego has expanded the functionality of program logs in a VirusBarrier X5 10.5.8 update. The Mac anti-virus software, which also handles iPhone and iPod touch scans, has additionally received improvements in malware detection and Word/Excel macro virus analysis, though extended log functions are the primary focus. Logs now record starts and stops for real-time scanning, virus definition updates and canceled archive scans.

Entries can now be copied to the clipboard or deleted individually, and a new toolbar button reveals items logged. Filters sort for information, warnings and threats, and malware is logged into four classes, including virus, type, backdoor and exploit.

Other changes involve performance enhancements and bug fixes, as well as the detection of more Windows-based malware. VirusBarrier X5 requires Mac OS X 10.4, but operates on both PowerPC and Intel Macs. It costs $70 for a one-seat license, $200 for a five-seat license and $360 for a 10-seat license.

    WTF?

    Why the F*** is macnn reporting crapware? There are no viruses on OSX, iPhone, or iPod touch. It costs $70 for something that does nothing? That's close to being a scam.

    ".exe" as shown in the photo are windows only and are not for OSX, iPhone, or iPod touch.

    Does nothing?

    VirusBarrier totally bogged down my system. It took forever to sync my iPod, download photos etc. Shutdown times became longer and longer. I finally booted in Verbose Mode and discovered it was VirusBarrier causing all the problems.
    Uninstalled it and everything was back to normal.
    No thanks, using ClamXav.
