clamav ought to still work on a mac although Im not sure anyone has added any virus definitions specific to a RISC proccessor yet but if you find a virus or creat one and you can add the virus definition yourself. :-) And Clam will work good for the purpose you want it for from what I gather. Also clam should also compile nicely on the Mac OS if you want to try I'd like to know just for kicks and giggles.

Only problem with clam is its not an active scanner you have to initiate the scan every so often and I don't think it can repair files just delete them clam is used in some email programs before saving the attachments.
