Home Forums Other ClamXav Mac OS X Infection Names? Re: ClamXav Mac OS X Infection Names?


OS X is a tricky one.

Buying it off eBay isn’t illegal, at least for you. It could be illegal for the person selling it if they’ve already used the disc to install it on their own machine.

The problem with OS X (from an Apple perspective) is that they really make it easy to pirate and/or get a huge discount on their OS. I’m starting to think they do it on purpose to make sure everyone is always up to date, which means they can always push the latest and greatest hardware on its customers.

Anyways, I wouldn’t worry about it myself, especially if it’s listed as new.
