I put Sophos Free on the ms. Mac some years ago. Then out of the blue last week got an email fron Sophos saying my 30 day free trial had expired.

Please, dont listen to people who are called "geniuses" as a job title - if someone at Apple actually said that to you then that is outrageous. Apple OS' are indeed less susceptible to viruses/malware etc - in comparison to PC i'd guess at 99 to 1 but they still are vulnerable to threats of various natures! However an Anti Virus these days is not just that, it protects you for a multitude of things from browser plugins, malicious files like Macros embedded in a harmless documents, website spoofing and I even think that the crypto viruses hit Macs too (could be wrong) - I am sure some of the IT guys from larger companies can chime in on more horror stories. Point is, have something, free or paid but just do not have nothing regardless of PC or MAC. I have nothing against Macs before the usual PC vs Mac arguments inevitably start!

cwj3820

Spoke to apple their staff are of the opinion if your mac is up to date you don’t need to add AV

PeskyEscley

Yes its technically the enterprise version, but I expect the product is effectively the same, just a different endpoint software on the client.

There are many antivirus tools out there, such as Symantec(Norton), McAfee, Avira, Avast, Kaspersky. Sophos i think is a decent product and its free...

BertieWusster

Thanks for the heads up on Bitdefender. I will still give it a go but will keep a close eye on how the laptop performs, just in case.

I would assume that it was G2A.com. I just purchased a key from them for £5.89. Hope that helps.

I tried Bitdefender many years ago and it caused my PC to slow down and had "stability" issues. I also recently tried Bitdefender Free (months ago now), and encountered my PC having 'issues', after uninstalling and switching to Sophos Free, my PC resumed 'normal and stable' operations. I am now trying out Kaspersky Free which has not given me any problems so far.

in$anity

Yes I read it. But that is Cisco in general. I've read the source code for the AV. And it doesn't collect data. The privacy policy says Cisco can/do log data, but that particular AV doesn't. Hence why I linked it. I don't think you're understanding me.

LV426a

I gave you the link from their web site - go read their privacy policy - scroll down to the bottom of their web page and click the privacy policy link.... (party)

in$anity

I've read the source code for ClamAV and there's literally nothing it collects that's sensitive.

techfruit

I was using "virus" more colloquially to mean malware, which was my mistake - you are right that actual real viruses are incredibly rare on Macs, but they do exist in the wild: https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2015/aug/04/mac-viruses-strike-secure-thunderstrike-2 https://blog.malwarebytes.org/mac/2015/08/dyld_print_to_file-exploit-found-in-the-wild/ Malware on the other hand, is not uncommon on Macs, which was the point I was trying to make (albeit badly).

would it be possible to run it through virtualbox ?

antsgame

What you need Intel compatible computer with dual network interfaces. (Any previous OS or files on the computer will be overwritten when installing the XG Firewall Home Edition)Home Edition is limited to 4 cores and 6 GB of RAM. The computer can have more than this, but XG Firewall Home Edition will not be able to utilize it.

flying_carpet

Thanks a lot for your very helpful reply and other useful safety tips ;). I am still a bit confused how you can make all other devices connect only via the firewall if it's a normal star home topology, i.e. internet/WAN - router - LAN devices including the firewall, pcs, mobiles etc? One topology which can make it work is internet/WAN - router - the firewall - switch - other LAN devices including pcs, mobiles etc, but it is certainly not a typical topology for a normal home and also you need at least two Ethernet cards for your firewall PC. Have I missed anything?

Huawei_or_my_way

Many Thanks, I have taken your advice and downloaded the UTM version. I will run it in a VM to see how it performs.

Huawei_or_my_way

Very good question :) You do not need a special network topology but will need to, at a minimum, set all devices to connect to the Internet via the firewall. For full protection I would disable access to the router from any other address other than the firewall and 1 specified 'Clean' PC that you can use to access the router in an emergency. All devices that connect to your network should connect via the firewall and the router should ignore/drop all attempted connections that do not come from the firewall. (Except for the 'Clean' PC which you must ensure is protected from infection etc.) You can avoid the need for the 'Clean' PC if you are able to quickly/easily reconfigure a PC to have the same IP address as the Firewall in an emergency (i.e. the Firewall crashes etc). The choice is yours depending on your Tech skills. You will also need to have a router that is configurable and NOT locked down as ISP's tend to do. Personally, I run my own 'Filtering' DNS Server and Firewall which between them filter out Ads and 'Bad' Addresses. I block any attempts to access the router directly and any attempts to access DNS other than my own Server. (Lots of software tries to access its own DNS Servers, ignoring my own setup. Which I find a little bit annoying as it is a potential source of unknown/unfiltered access to my PC's and/or network.) As you can tell , I am not very trusting of 'Magic' software that just does its own thing. !!! :)

I'm a big fan of Sophos from using the enterprise product going back 18 years ago. However i'm not sure i'm keen on having to use a web based portal for home use but trying it out to see how it goes. Currently I use Kaspersky free through Barclays but sometimes that can be a pain in the ar$e for being overbearing trying to install software.

I have been using this free antivirus on a windows netbook and a tablet ( desktop has Kaspersky). There is a free Sophos Android app as well. Unlike alot of the free antivirus, there are no nagging screens telling you to purchase an upgrade. We used Sophos at a couple of companies I worked for so it is mainly aimed at business I suspect.

Wii89

I don't trust home routers at all, full of bugs and backdoors, I have been using this firewall for around an month and it does so much more then my simple home router.

loiterer

How little you appear to know about routers. If in this day and age you think your computers security depends on a software firewall you need to do some research (or get a Mac). However, if you think your computer is at risk of poisoning other people's computers may I suggest you stay well away from dubious websites (or get a Mac).

roybad

This so shouldn't be cold. A free firewall for a dedicated PC isn't bad. Shame we are not paranoid enough to wonder what we are sending out compared to what is trying to get into ourhome networks. Hot from me! :)

There's no bomb proof system, jus look at last dodgy Xcode fiasco. IOS apps approved by Apple containing malware. End user is always the weakest link.

loiterer

I've been hearing this same old, same old for close on 30 years. It still hasn't happened. At best I vaguely recall about one failed attempt every year and not one that has spread beyond one computer. OSX runs on very strict privileges, if a Mac gets something unwanted on it, it's because the user authorised it. There is no where for a Mac "proof of concept" virus or trojan horse, etc., to escalate to. This is why Mac's are so damned secure and offer a first line of defence for the American armed services. Wikipedia states "Only a few major viruses have hit Macs in the last years. The difference in virus vulnerability between Macs and Windows is a chief selling point, one that Apple uses in their "Get a Mac" advertising."

loiterer

Not so you'd notice. I think you can count the total number of attempts (nothing currently live) at infecting Mac OSX on one hand. I've used PC's and Macs since the first Mac computer and I have never seen malware, spyware or viruses on any of my companies, friends or families Mac's. PC's were once quite another matter. I now use the latter exclusively for gaming; apart from Windows X, I have installed Steam, uPlay, Origin, Creative Labs (with reluctance) and nVidia software and essential motherboard drivers, nothing else. All work, browsing, messaging, e-mailing, etc., I do on Mac's and iPad's. I don't even bother with OSX's firewall any longer as my router is bullet-proof...Not a single attempt to probe my ports has been made from beyond the router to my Mac network.

This played havoc with my MBP and took it off after about 15 minutes.

The real value of this is highlighted by this: Basically, it is more designed to stop the propagation of Windows viruses, either from attachments sent by Windows users and spambots or those who have Windows installed via Bootcamp and believe that just because they are running on Apple hardware that they are also immune from viruses. Not installing this. I remember the first version was a bit of a disaster and caused more problems than it solved. This won't stop Trojans or malware, either, which is a bigger issue for OSX than viruses.

AdzyUK

Great! I'm an avid Mac user, even though threats don't bother me one single bit as they don't affect Mac users as much as Windows, but it's nice to have a good solid AV client in the background just in case. And on a plus note, it's much better than ClamX AV, it's happily handling my 400,000+ files with ease!

BigAde

True, but at £112.50 for SCS for 1 year it's hardly priced within reach of the home user. Big shame really as it's a nice product that would otherwise get my recommendation for clients.

megalomaniac

OSX is an officially certified UNIX variant, it started out life as NeXTSTEP which in turn had its roots in the BSD's, so it's far from being "Linux with a pretty front end on it". As for viruses, malware etc. on Macs, yes they are possible and yes they do exist. However, the fundamental differences in security model from the likes of Windows makes it very unlikely unless you do something silly (like click on the link for fr33 Pr0n....download the fr33 Pr0n app.....and install it). Even if you are infected the damage such things can do are limited, unless you do something monumentally stupid.

andymagic

Ahh, the old "security through obscurity" Mantra Mac's can, and do get virus's - why? Because they run Linux with a pretty front end on it, Linux has a fairly decent sized installed base, certainly worth going after in the eyes of those that create such malware. I'm not anti/pro anything when it comes to computers I run Windows, OSX, Linux and Unix on several machines, they are all insecure in some way.
