Virus Scanner Plus for mac 2018 has been developed by Bitdefender and enables you to scan your Mac in order to identify possible threats. The application is using the Bitdefender virus definitions, which are updated every hour. From the Virus Scanner Plus Preferences window you can choose to have the definitions automatically updated before scanning, but you can also trigger the process manually by pressing the “Update Now” button from the main window.
Other customization options include the possibility to choose the actions that should be taken when an infected item is detected: you can take no action or you can try to disinfect it using the Virus Scanner Plus capabilities. If the process fails, the malicious file will be moved in the quarantine folder. To gain time, you can choose to scan only the new and changed files and you can set a maximum size for the scanned archives. Furthermore, you can easily create your own exlcusion list.
