Windows based Apple Mac PC's have been attacked by new variants of the fast-growing Flashback/Flashfake Trojan, which already have affected more than 600,000 according to security vendor Doctor Web and Kaspersky Lab. Apple Mac computers worldwide are affected, with more than half of them occuring in the United States. The malware uses Javascript code rather than relying on user interaction. It infects the Macs by exploiting a Java script vulnerability that Apple just patched only weeks following the available fix for Windows PCs. There is now a Java malware removal update available from APPLE as listed at link below.
