VMware includes McAfee antivirus in Fusion 2.0 Release Candidate 1 milestone

In the final rush to deliver its new desktop virtualization platform for Apple users, Fusion 2.0, VMware introduces a new, unexpected feature in the latest build: the antivirus.

The company has an agreement with McAfee to include VirusScan Plus, offered as trial feature, and a complimentary 12-months subscription.


There is no special integration anyway: the users will just be able to install the security product inside Windows guest OSes as they do with the VMware Tools.
