Apple MAC Flashback Virus How To Detect And Fix
With 500,000+ MACS reportedly infected with this trojan virus, Kaspersky Labs, the company to first inform the public about the Flashback threat, has introduced a website called Flashbackcheck. There, you can check to see if your computer is infected, and if it is, download software to delete the rogue virus. Similarly, anti-virus company F-Secure has released its own cure, a tool called Flashback Removal. The download is a relatively small file that scours your computer for the virus and helps isolate and eliminate the threat if your Mac is infected.
Neither of these are official solutions from Apple. Still, with no word on exactly how long Apple's fix will take, they make a really good substitute for anyone who's developed a well-founded case of digital germophobia.
