We reported a while ago that a certain malware named Flashback Trojan had made silent encroaches into Apple machines around the world and was able to infect some 600,000 Macs around the globe. Now, we have been told that Apple is working on a tool that will be able to detect the malware and then remove it from the user’s machine.


Apple has tried to counter this certain trojan in the past too. The Flashback trojan started infecting the machines using a security flaw in Java back in February. Apple was informed of this security hole a little late and sent out a Java update only on April 3, which of course was too late since the trojan had already infected hundreds of thousands of Macs.

So naturally, now Apple has to release another tool that will be able to clean the mess created by this Flashback trojan. However, this trojan is not very dangerous on its own and relies on the command control network which comprises of servers of the authors of the malware, to carry out most critical tasks. Apple is striking at that part too. The company is working with a number of ISPs around the globe to take down the host servers of the malware authors so that they can’t make the trojan carry out major tasks.

However, if you can’t wait for Apple to accomplish all this for you and want to make sure of the security of your Mac on your own, the best thing to do at this point is to probably either get a new version of Java from Apple or simply disable Java on the browser on your Mac machine. That should at least save you from the malware if your machine has not been already infected with it.
