    There's a big arguement whether it is legit or not. From what I see visually, like the layout, and from people mentioning the server issues, I think it isnt real, but people do say that it does so its job...

    What I heard was...

    "The source is correct, and the results of adding it and installing whatever it contains, are correct, but the source is not intentionally malicious. Turns out it’s a genuine McAfee product — an early alpha test repository for a forthcoming antivirus product aimed at the iPhone and Touch..."

    Soooo, don't install it... yet.

    It doesn't matter if you can or not, people are stupid. They'll see 'anti-virus' and go OMG! I need to get this to protect my phone from all the viruses! There will most likely never be a virus for a phone, but McAfee and I'm sure Symantec will try to tell you there will be. It's the same with PC viruses. If you know what you're doing, you're not going to get one.. There is never a need for virus protection. People are just stupid and fall for the tricks these companies want them to to make money.

    there definitely will be virus's for phones. That is were everything is going. How to protect yourself is a whole other story.
