This free app will check if your Mac is infected by THAT Trojan

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.
