[OS X TeX] OT: effective Macintosh Trojan in the wild

I read the discussion about viruses on mac and want to add one scanner: 
I use clamAV ( http://www.clamav.net ) as antivirus tool with ClamXav ( 
http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/24449 ) as gui 
frontend. It is a freeware scanner for unix, mac and win. It is really 
slow, a scan of my 30 GB-volume took about 2,5 hours and it does not 
find viruses on the classic enviroment. But it seems to "know" a lot of 
different viruses. Worth a look, I think.

On the other hand - Symantec is beta-testing a new version of NAV. 
Maybe this will give us a little more protection.

Have a nice day,
