    McAfee mobile is a Mobile R&D team inside McAfee. So the app is from McAfee but, as it has been said in the splash screen and in the about box, is still in beta.

    I contacted McAfee customer service, and they told me it was real and in development. Its main use to is to find the few known iPhone viruses. So it's not a fake! I spent an hour on hold to find this out.

    ... *known* iPhone viruses?

    could you, please, list them?


    (fifteen years, now, on MacOS, never used an anti-virus and never seen a single virus! the iPhone... is running MacOS X, isn't it? ))

    Now mcafee is giving me the runaround.

    My Online Customer Service Chat:
    Kevin Tucker: Matthew, McAfee is not providing software for I phones but generally you can get the software for mobile phones.
    Kevin Tucker: I am now going to push you a link that will open a web page on your computer.
    Kevin Tucker: hXXp://us.mcafee.com/en-us/global/html/products/triple_play/direct.asp
    Kevin Tucker: Please use that link to purchase the software for moblie phone and further assistance you can contact our Sales Department.
    Customer: But how can it be using your server? It's address is ipkg.mcafeemobile.com
    Customer: Is it a scam?
    Customer: Are you still there Kevin?
    Kevin Tucker: It's not scam however I will help you to contact Sales.
    Kevin Tucker: May I know the country in which you are located?
    Customer: United States
    Kevin Tucker: Please contact our Sales Department at 1-866-622-3911 to place the order.
    Customer: I dont want to order, I just want to know if "iVirusScan from McAfee" is real
    Kevin Tucker: Generally we do offer software for mobile phones, but in your case you need to contact Sales.

    Last night when I called them they said they were developing virus scanning software for mobile phones (including iPhone) Sorry guys if it does turn out fake, but current evidence shows different. (Using M's server)

    I have used windows for over ten years (I'm only 19 ) and I have never had a single virus. I should have had 10000's of them from the websites I visit (For hacks), but I have never had one on my PC. And I am sick of the stereotype that macs do not get viruses. They do, but not enough people (present company excluded) use the OS. Is the stats for Windows still triple over mac? As for the other known viruses you should probably use my bestfriend Google for that. But you should probably use the scanner if you use your phone as a storage device (like i do from time to time.) And the iPhone is using a modified version of OSX so it may not have all the security features as the full blown version. I have only had a hackint0sh for a few months, but it does seem a little different than the iPhone. Sorry I this post is not making any since, I have not slept in a while and I have had a lot of caffiene lol

    Title updated.

    I don't think this will be released before next month and an antivirus is supposed to run in the background right ?

    If it does not it should be called a virus scanner.

    McAfee also has an app called "Stinger Mobile" I have no clue what stinger is, since I have never even heard of it. I will warn you that I did (last week) install iVirusScan, Stinger Mobile, and UNINSTALLED HWpen and I got the Spinning Wheel of Death. But I believe it was the uninstaltion of HW that caused it.

    Well it isnt neccessarily unofficial since they told me it wasnt a scam, but I would call it official. I guess my last sentence doesnt make much since, but it did in my mind,:p

    Just tried. Install and then removed. Looks like it does not hurt my iPhone.

    Fortunately.

    Anyway, I think this is still essential when iPhone becomes more popular:hack:
