Apple Pulls Antivirus Support Page Over Widespread Confusion

Following a veritable upheaval of disbelief across the web surrounding Apple’s recommendation of utilizing various antivirus applications on Macs, that as it turned out had been present on Apple’s website for over a year’s time, has now apparently been pulled possibly due to the common lack of understanding.

The Apple support document in question had stated, “Apple encourages the widespread use of multiple antivirus utilities so that virus programmers have more than one program to circumvent, thus making the whole virus writing process more difficult,” adding the recommendation of applications such as Intego VirusBarrier X4, Norton Anti-Virus for Macintosh, and Virex.

Yet after heavy circulation of this off-putting news, scrutinizing eyes had determined that the last date of modification to the article was made on June 08, 2007. ArsTechnica notes that the confusion came through updates to each vendor’s latest application versions, adding that it would typically be unnecessary to use multiple antivirus apps simultaneously. So Apple was referring the fact that as long as users are running one of the recommended applications, it is more difficult for malware to infiltrate your machine. At any rate, Apple has decided to remove the article, for a possible rewrite to avoid confusing language, yet the original can still be found viewed here.
