Mac computers certainly aren’t immune to viruses and malware. In the past, we rarely heard about viruses and malware aimed specifically at Mac computers, but their growing popularity has certainly caught the attention of hackers today.
The latest attack on Mac users comes in the form of the Flashback malware. This particular malware takes advantage of the Java vulnerability, which Apple has already tried to patch. There are third-party tools for finding and removing the malware already.
However, many people prefer to wait until Apple offers tools and fixes for issues with their computer. If you’re one of these people will be glad to know that Apple has announced it is working on its own tool to discover and remove Flashback. No date on when the removal tool be available has been offered.
