Recently a Tojan Horse Virus has affected a large number of Macs. A trojan horse is a certain type of virus that works essentially like the original Trojan Horse. The way that this specific virus gets into your computer is by exploiting a certain bug in the Java runtime software.

F-Secure has instructions to identify whether or not you have the Trojan virus and if you do have it, how to remove it. Or you can use Free Flashback Checker Juan Leon. If you do not have the virus immediately update your software so the patch for the Java bug can be fixed. There are rumors that Apple is currently working on a tool to detect and remove the Flashback malware. So hopefully this virus will become history soon.
