[unisog] AV for MACS

We've seen a number of OSX hosts compromised, most recently a majority of
them have been through weak SSH passwords through variations of brutessh2.c.
Don't be fooled that the OSX platform is safe just because there aren't many
viruses.  Unix is just as juicy a target if not more given the perception of
greater uptimes and higher bandwidth.

It's not just about windows.  kaiten.c does not discriminate, neither to the
miscreants.
