With the recently release Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, it is now being evaluated by numerous experts. We will know more information in the coming weeks but it looks like it is good for securing the system. On the previous OS X 10.7, there is a hole in the sandbox but from their recent 10.8, there are added advanced technologies such as the Gatekeeper which preclude unauthorized coding from your Mac PC.

This is also a perfect resolution for Alfred Gatekeeper aspiration to keep the user safe from malware when downloading applications from the App Store. The Gatekeeper will let you install applications only from the Mac Store and developers that  digitally signed their apps with the Apple Developer ID.

The good news is that Alfred 1.2 has a certified Apple Developer ID sign. Which simply means that Alfred and Powerpack will absolutely work in Mountain Lion 10.8 without needing to change the security settings. This will mean your Mac is safe from any threats.

You have asked an interesting question. yes, with Gatekeeper Apple has made the OS X ML more safer than others previous versions. The gatekeeper protects the Mac from malicious downloads. Although you may not need to have an anti-virus installed on Mac but if you ever consider try Sophos or ClamXav. They work fine.
