Their Internet service includes Norton Internet Security for Macs. As suggested above, whether you should install it or not is another question: http://constantguard.comcast.net/products-and-services/norton-internet-security/

No, not from Comcast.  They offer it only for Windows------------------------

That said, currently there are no known viruses in the wild that are known to affect Mac OS X.  There have been a few phishing programs that have been directed at Macs though.  There was something discovered not long ago in Russia that could affect Macs, but only certain machines over there as I recall.  This source specifically says NOT to put Norton an a Mac as it's incompatible with OS X-----------------

"Do not install Norton Anti-Virus on a Mac as it can seriously damage your operating system. Norton Anti-Virus is not compatible with Apple OS X."

 

I have been using my iMac for 6 years, and have never had an issue with malware.  I have no security software on it other than the program mentioned in the article which is built into later versions of OS X.
