This article from www.macworld.com is certainly informative:

http://www.macworld.com/article/3184371/security/antivirus-software-wont-save-your-mac-from-future-malware.html

Interesting that no mention of the excellent freeware program Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, and the excellent anti-virus program ClamXav, is made. A number of us (including myself) have recommended Malwarebytes, although it is intended to "treat" anti-malware (typically annoying and/or intrusive ads that appear when using a browser). And some of us (agin, myself included) have recommended ClamXav.

It would be useful of other knowledgeable folks could comment about this.

I used ClamXav, is a basic virus protection solution that doesn't include too many features, resulting in a low loss of computer performance. About Malwarebytes - I heard that there is no real-time protection :eek:

I use Avast Free Mac Security and MacRepair, hand-in-hand, mainly because there is no moola involve. LOLs.
