    This is getting serious. Just add automatic installation, and you'll own quite a large Macnet.

    Intego is like Apple, if it finds something it uses it's own names. So MacDefender.F may not be the same in ESET vs Intego. Plus, I did not see MacDefender.G in ESET like I did in Intego's blog post.
