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.
