(I know there are much better softwares out there for the Mac so please don't go there! The politics of this company dictate which Anti virus we have to use)
Anyway without any further wait:
Basically I am trying to automate 2 very important functions of McAfee anti-virus for Mac. First I want to automate the process of retrieving new virus definition files, and second I want to automate the process of scanning for viruses. It turns out that Using Mc'Afee Anti-Virus for the Mac are both manual functions. And they left up to the user (per user account) to perform. Depending on all of about 150 Mac users to perform these 2 tasks themselves is around 65% compliance.
My question then is:
If I wanted to use the command line such as (
open /Applications/McAfee\ Security.App) It will open up the Security Console. But how can I make command McAfee go out and grab the definition files and scan the computer?
I have to admit I am at a crossroad and Macaltimers has set in.
