I guess we can try it and see if there are any "intrusers" detected. I never had any problems, and never means - since the 1st gen PPC. So why now?
I wouldn't pay 50 bucks for it anyway - and I'm sure it will eat about 50% of my CPU,

no panic... mac os x is not yet hacked...
why should I use this application?

When I start hearing about Macs being hacked through means other that social engineering, I might consider this product. And by hear, I mean hear from people I know. Starting off a product description with a little scare tactic... sad.

Either that, or the people that made this just want to make some monies...

So now those dangerous hackers, vandals and other security risks are after Mac users, too? Damn ...
