Threaded View

I've received notification in the Kaspersky labs forums that there is a
new beta program available to download, here:-

I'm on board my narrowboat at present with only my Windows XP laptop
available. Just wondered if anyone here might like to try/investigate
the facility and report their findings.

More detail:-


Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Mac (Beta):

Key file for beta version:

Build (5.06.2009)

Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Mac protects home users of Apple
Macintosh-based computers against malware.


The minimum system requirements for proper functioning of Kaspersky
Anti-Virus for Mac are as follows:

Mac-based computer with Intel processor
512 MB RAM
100 MB available hard drive space

New in protection:

- Kaspersky Anti-Virus is developed based on an enhanced anti-virus
kernel that has a high efficiency in malware detection
- File scan runs automatically in real-time mode or by user's demand
- Automatic updating of application databases
- New in the application interface:

- The application interface is designed in Mac style, with the use of
principles and agreements developed for this platform, thus making the
use of Kaspersky Anti-Virus more convenient to Mac users
- Kaspersky Anti-Virus integrates the security assistant which allows
the user to solve all security problems in a single window on his or her


- If the application settings are blocked from custom changes, the help
button in the settings window is inoperable.
- When restoring a file from Quarantine or Backup, file loses the access
rights it had when it was added. To access the file, you should set the
rights manually under an administrator's account.
- When adding Kaspersky Anti-Virus into Firewall integrated in Mac OS X
10.5, the application cannot be started. To solve this problem, you

- In certain report windows, pop-up hints are displayed incorrectly.
- When installing Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Mac together with Kaspersky
Anti-Virus for Windows installed on Parallels virtual machine, both
anti-virus applications start at the operating system's startup. To

Impersonating Peter Foldes is NOT tolerable.
You continue to PROVE your status as a news group troll is justified.

Re: Anti-virus for Apple Mac

You may believe it or not, but that was a mistake on my part and was
*not* intended. I had meant to post in my own name.

I apologise unreservedly.

For the benefit of newbies who might be reading here, David, please
explain how you *knew* it was me posting, not Peter - and just what
caused you to check message headers in this particular instance. Thanks.

Reprehensible Personal Behavior

This goes well beyond nym shifting.

No creditable explanation exists.

This is a disgusting action!


Re: Anti-virus for Apple Mac

I've been chastised many times for changing  the 'subject' of a thread
mid-way through - there is *no* excuse for you doing so on this
occasion, 1PW.

Without a proper response as to *why* David H. Lipman checked the
message properties of the post I made - mistakenly and unintentionally -
with the posting name of Peter Foldes, neither he, nor you, will have
credibility in this newsgroup.

The information posted was provided by Kaspersky and, AFAICT is bona
fide. Is anyone questioning the information posted?

Dave, I don't think the burden of credibility is on either of them.
Depending on how one reads news, the headers that gave you away
weren't headers at all--it's your posting style of just pasting
privately received emails here without any introductory comments that
surely drew suspicion, and sure enough a quick header check showed a
pattern that matched all your prior postings.   David Lipman need not
explain himself. 1PW's assessment of such behavior (forging posts
impersonating someone else) is entirely justified as well.

Why or how the heck you "mistakenly" forged a posting as Peter Foldes
will keep you on the suspicion list for everyone probably in
perpetuity.   It's also why you won't receive a response to the private email you
sent me.  

It takes a bit of effort to "mistakenly" change your posting address
in your newreader, so you'll forgive anyone who has a hard time
accepting the "oops" explanation you've offered.

I'll not make excuses, Todd.

I usually use Eternal-September for posting on this group. On the
occasion in question I mistakenly posted from the aoie server (which I
had previously used experimentally - set up with Mr Foldes name).

He says he can track my movements anywhere on the Internet, regardless
of my IP address - and has a record of every post I have made for the
last four years. He has not explained *why*. That truly
concerns/interests me.

I had no wish or intention of annoying folk on *this* group. I am sorry
for so doing.

I have no trust in inconsistencies!
