SecureMac Releases MacScan 2.4

SecureMac released version 2.4 of MacScan on Monday. A significant change was the extension of the trial period to 30 days.

"This version also fixes a number of issues discovered in previous versions, with updates to the removal of Firefox tracking cookies, as well as enhancements to the way MacScan removes tracking cookies from all browsers," the announcement said.

MacScan is Mac OS X security software designed to detect and remove spyware, keystroke loggers, trojan horses, and bring awareness to remote administration applications which could have been maliciously or inadvertently installed on your Macintosh.

This is especially helpful when there are multiple users of a Mac, a Mac has been purchased, or if the user is concerned about how some software might conduct outbound connections.

The upgrade is free to registered users of version 2. MacScan 2.4 requires Mac OS X 10.2.4 or later. It is priced at US$24.95.
