Thanks to the MacAttorney, Randy B. Singer. Randy emailed to his mailing list about a recent virus making the rounds for Mac users. This “Mac Flashback Trojan” has apparently infected some Mac computers. Here is an article on how to check if your computer is infected, and how to go about resolving the issue.
For many Mac OS X users, you should have already received a Java update from Apple that will patch this problem. If not, you can check for operating system updates by clicking on Apple icon in the upper left corner of your desktop and going to Software Update. If a patch for Java is listed, be sure to install it promptly to protect your computer from viruses like these.
