Mac Users Beware of Malware


With half a million Macs infected, Apple issues second anti-malware patch


Apple has now issued the second software update this week in order to patch the vulnerability in Java software that allowed the malware to spread to up to 600,000 Mac computers.


Intego, maker of Mac security software, said the malware, known as Flashback, has "changed greatly from its first incarnation.  Initially a fake Adobe Flash installer (hence the name Flashback), it later changed to impersonate a Software Update dialog, before using Java vulnerabilities to install."


Once installed, the malware can be used by criminals to steal personal information, including passwords.





Apple plans software to rid 650,000 Macs of Flashback virus
