During the past week it came to light that some of our beloved Macs were being infected by a Trojan virus. I know, Macs don’t get viruses, still – it happened, and now it’s fixed. Regardless, if you’re worried that you could be one of the 600,000 Mac users affected, you should download this free app to scan your OS X system.
Flashback Checker designed by Juan Leon runs a scan of your computer and tells you whether or not your Mac has been infiltrated. Unfortunately, the program doesn’t remove any threats – that said, the latest software update to Mac OS X does patch up the exploitable holes, leaving you relatively harm free. If you need to remove the virus, check F-secure’s “how to” and follow the instructions.
