I'm using ClamXav on my Mac. I've read this, and I am aware of the whole Macs-need-no-AV-but-they-do-anyway discussion. I guess that's why I would feel like a real jerk if I somehow managed to compromise my system!
So ClamXav has been downloaded and ClamXav Sentry set up to start on log-in, but it doesn't really do anything before you tell it to. Specifically, you have to tell it which folders to watch for virusses/vira so I'm wondering, where are good places to look?
Currently it's been set up to look the following places:
In the home folder:
~/Library/Contextual Menu Items
In my system folder:
/Library/Contextual Menu Items
Basically, this is 100% conjecture. All (most of) the folders have something to do with the Internet and things that start up automatically, so I'm guessing that's where vira go. But still, the qustion:
- Which folders should ClamXav Sentry watch, if any?
FYI, I'm not using any mail applications, but please include that in your answer for anyone who might be interested.
