MacDefender Changes Name Again: Now MacShield

Posted on June 3rd, 2011 by

The people behind the MacDefender fake antivirus are keeping very busy. The latest variant has yet another name: after MacDefender, MacProtector, MacSecurity and MacGuard, say hello to MacShield.

Naturally, Intego VirusBarrier X6, with its current threat filters, detected this variant without the need for an update, because of the multiple techniques it uses to detect malware. So if you use VirusBarrier X6, you can be sure you'll be protected from this and other variants.
