At last, Apple has released a fresh update of Java that will deal with the infected Macs. Two days ago iPad maker said that it is working on a “fix” for the Mac machines that have been reported to be attacked by Flashback Torjan.
Dr. Web from Russia reported that some 600,000 MacBooks have been compromised by Flashback malware but the Cupertino took time to react.
Apple states on its Website “This Java security update removes the most common variants of the Flashback malware.”
The update is meant for users running Mac OS X 10.6 and 10.7, for those using earlier version are asked to turn off the Java from their Web browser to cope with the malware.
Flashback Trojan opens the backdoor in Macs and connects them to the network of servers controlled by malware authors, resulting in stolen sensitive private information about users.
