Mac OS Malware alert!

April 8, 2012

If you haven’t been updating your Mac system software lately, you run the risk of a malware attack from a trojan called OSX/Flashback.I. Here’s how to tell if your Mac is infected.

If it is, here’s how to get rid of it. (If you use security software, and it stays regularly updated, it should catch it also. I tend not to keep security software running because it conflicts with other stuff.)

There is also a new update to Java for OX X Lion (check your Software Update) that is supposed to close off the vulnerability.

Yep, it’s a Java problem. Don’t say Steve Jobs didn’t warn you!
