Intego yesterday discovered yet another variant of the RSPlug Trojan horse, this one called RSPlug.L. It’s more of the same, just change around a bit to try and get by antivirus software. No worries; our Virus Monitoring Center had new virus definitions available less than an hour after it was discovered. With Intego VirusBarrier X5, and Intego’s NetUpdate for updating programs, filters and virus definitions, you can be sure you’re safe from the torrent of Trojan horses we’ve been seeing lately.
Here’s a tip. If you don’t already have NetUpdate set to check for updates daily, you can do so in the program’s Scheduling settings:
When NetUpdate checks for updates, it doesn’t use much network bandwidth and hardly any processor time. So you won’t even notice daily checks, unless there’s something to update. Keep your Mac safer by checking daily so you always have the latest virus definitions as soon as possible.
