Life had been calm for Mac users when suddenly we were told that a certain Java exploit was being used by a Flashback Trojan to infect hundreds of thousands of Macs. Apple was prompt to respond and stated that it was working on a tool to counter this security threat. Now, Apple has released the software update which, it claims, can adequately take care of the Flashback Trojan.


So what does this software update for Mac machines essentially do? Basically, it is able to remove the Flashback Trojan from an infected Mac and put an end to automatic execution of Java applets.

According to the description furnished on the official page, ‘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.’

Interestingly, at the bottom of the page, Apple hasn’t forgot to mention that all such Mac users who have Java installed, need to install this update. To install the update, you can simply navigate to ‘Software Update’ in Apple menu at the top left corner of your screen.
