E.J. Posted April 6, 2012 Report Share Posted April 6, 2012 More than half a million Apple computers have been infected with the Flashback Trojan, according to a Russian anti-virus firm.Its report claims that about 600,000 Macs have installed the malware - potentially allowing them to be hijacked and used as a "botnet". Java's developer, Oracle, issued a fix to the vulnerability on 14 February, but this did not work on Macintoshes as Apple manages Java updates to its computers.Apple released its own "security update" on Wednesday - more than eight weeks later. It can be triggered by clicking on the software update icon in the computer's system preferences panel. http://www.bbc.co.uk...onment-17623422 or just look here: http://forums.awesomedude.com/index.php?showtopic=6419&pid=40865&st=0entry40865 Quote Link to comment
