Mac Virus is an anti-malware information page created by Susan Lesch in the 1990s, and inherited by David Harley when Susan couldn’t find time to update it any more. He wasn’t updating it much either, but as Mac malware looks like becoming a larger part of his life, this started to change drastically in 2010. In summer 2010, Old Mac Bloggit, the well-known pseudonymous typographical error (apologies to the shade of Spike Milligan) joined the crew, but isn’t currently contributing. As David is no longer working full-time and in any case the page isn’t sponsored, this site isn’t maintained as regularly as it was.
The main Mac Virus URL is http://www.macvirus.com/, though https://macviruscom.wordpress.com/ also works, and we have no connection with macvirus.org or macvirus.net. And while David Harley currently works closely with a security company, this is a vendor-neutral zone. It is not financed or resourced by any security company except for ICSALabs, which owns the macvirus.com domain but exercises no control over the content. Opinions expressed here do not represent the views, policies or interests of any company. Or even Small Blue-Green World, necessarily, since Old Mac doesn’t work for us.🙂 But then he hasn’t written for us for ages.
The photo, by the way, was taken in Surrey in February 2010, and yes, the sky really was that colour.🙂
