How about mac antivirus?
As a general rule it's unnecessary. Read Lincs article, you will see with a small amount of common sense there isn't any need for antivirus software. In fact in many cases having it installed tends to create more issues than it solves. There are very small amounts of malware available for OS X but not viruses. Howeve even the malware can easily be avoided. The best thing you can do to keep a Mac trouble free is to keep it up-to-date by running Software Update and downloading what Apples suggests for your system. It's really that easy,

It has been my expierance that only the newer intel Macs are even to be worried about and only if you are dual booting to Windows. However, Malware is prevelant across both platforms and can be troubelsome. But, this has all been covered above. So Viruses have not been an issue if you are using Mac OSX, Remember that your mail is one of the main problems when viruses are concerned but Safe Computing is always the #1 defense. Stay clear of **** and file sharing, XXX.
