MacScan is Free Today Only (9-20-2010)

MacScan is free today only. Order the software from the website at http://macscan.securemac.com/buy/ and then select PURCHASE SINGLE LICENSE. Enter the coupon code PIRATE (someone either has a sense of humor or they really like talk like a pirate day). Enter your information and you will get a free license to use with a downloaded copy of MacScan.

For those that don't know, MacScan is a way to protect your security and privacy, The authors describe it as being the premier Anti-Spyware program for Mac OS X. Detect, isolate, and remove spyware as well as clean up Internet clutter. With MacScan’s Blacklisted Cookie Scan you can remove blacklisted tracking cookies without losing all your saved usernames and passwords. Keep up to date with the latest Spyware definition updates!


Since early 2002, SecureMac has been developing its proprietary anti-spyware application, MacScan. January 2006 saw the release of MacScan for OS X at MacWorld San Francisco. But in 2007, the MacScan team upped the ante at Macworld SF by releasing MacScan 2 with key features such as frequent definition updates and then for cookies on their Cookie Blacklist. Users can now remove over 8000 known cookies for adware and malware with a single click and without losing any of their saved cookies. The Cookie Blacklist definitions, like the Spyware definitions, come in easy to download updates.

Key features are that the software:
  • Detects, Isolates and Removes Spyware
  • Detects over 8800 blacklisted tracking cookies
  • Internet Clutter Cleanup
  • Schedule Automated Scans
  • Free Definition Updates
I know, how much spyware is there on a mac but the software is certainly worth having for free.
