So i just watched BBC Click, an episode about 'man in the browser' financial malware. Basically the advice was to realise if your bank's website suddenly asks for an unusual amount of information like whole passwords etc. For some years now i have not bothered with anti-virus on my macs (x5). I have even queried the forums and people have generally advised that as long as you stay away from dubious sites and never give permission to an odd looking program to run then you should be fine. Does anyone have advice on different browsers or mac-specific software that will actually help the user. My experience with AV software on PCs is that they tend to be significantly slower after installation and then you have to keep 'scanning' and 'updating' and of course 'paying' For anyone who does not know, the 'Man in the Browser' is a specific type of malware that somehow resides within the browser, acting as a malicious layer between you and your browser. It is capable of changing both the information you enter and information being displayed to you.
