Last week there were reports of 600000 Macs being infected by what is known as the ‘Flashback Virus’ which was caused by tricking users into installing which appeared to be flash player but was really Malware. This came to a shock for a lot of people as OS X is known for it’s Virus free platform but this theory was proved wrong.
Hit up software update and install the 66.8MB update!
This Java security update removes the most common variants of the Flashback malware.
This update also configures the Java web plug-in to disable the automatic execution of Java applets. Users may re-enable automatic execution of Java applets using the Java Preferences application. If the Java web plug-in detects that no applets have been run for an extended period of time it will again disable Java applets.
This update is recommended for all Mac users with Java installed.
