Apple releases new OS X update for removing Flashback Trojan



Apple has released new updated for Mac OS X that detects and removes the malicious Flashback trojan, which infected more than 600,000 Mac laptops worldwide.

Flashback is the second big Mac Trojan outbreak in a year and lays waste to the ridiculous contention that OS X doesn't get malware or is somehow more secure than Windows. The real problem is something else: The false sense of security Apple marketing creates about Mac security.

Apple used to claim "Mac OS X doesn't get PC viruses", which is a bit misleading. Many viruses are operating system-specific. But OS X can get Mac viruses and is vulnerable to worms that can affect any operating system. Now Apple claims "OS X has you covered...With virtually no effort on your part, OS X offers a multilayered system of defenses against viruses and other malicious applications, or malware". <_<
