With the recent reports of 600,000 Mac computers becoming infected by the Flashback trojan Apple is finally taking action. We’ve thus far seen a tool to check for the trojan, but we are yet to see an automated fix. F-Secure has provided some in-depth details that require computer knowledge to fix your computer though.
Earlier today Apple announced that they are actively working on a tool to fix the trojan. The tool would firstly detect the trojan, and then attempt to remove it. The Flashback Trojan is currently installed one 1 percent of Macs around the world, so you might want to check your computer if you’ve used Java in the past.
While Apple is creating the tool they are also working with Internet providers to disable the servers containing the malware. So far Apple has outed two versions of Java in attempt to fix the security flaw. They believe the most recent Java has patched the venerability.
If your waiting for the tool, the estimated release date has yet to be released.
