Just picked up a Mac and was wondering what is the best Spyware blocker for Macs? Any freeware available for a poor college student?

Thats a good question...
I've never had spyware showup on my MAC, so I never bothered to get any blockers for it...

I'm gonna have to do some Googling...

EDIT:
http://macscan.securemac.com/

Check this place. I think its in BETA.
But they have it for both Mac OS and Mac OS X

Some of the posters have links to spyware related Mac Stuff.

As a user of both PC and Mac I find spending all my time over in the Malware forum has just increased my love of my Mac. That said, I still find it hard to let go of my PC. I just can't help the need to incessantly tinker with a computer. With the Mac there are no real "tools" to run, there is not any real need to worry about spyware, to put it simply, I get bored with all the extra time not fixing a computer. *God forbid I get a life* :tazz:
