Flashback removal tool

Monday, April 16th, 2012

Last Thursday, Apple released the Java for OS X Lion 2012-003 update to kill the Flashback malware.  The update also configures the Java web plug-in to disable automatic executive of Java applets, which keeps Flashback from spreading.  This update works for all Mac users with Java installed.

For OS X Lion users WITHOUT Java installed, Apple has provided a download of a Flashback malware removal tool.  If Flashback malware is found, a dialog box will appear and let you know that the malware has been removed.
