F-secure releases free Flashback removal script for OS X

F-secure releases free Flashback removal script for OS X | Apple, Mac, MacOS, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it
The new free tool adds to the growing community effort to help affected Mac users remove the malware from their systems. Read this blog post by Topher Kessler on MacFixIt.

 

This new tool by F-Secure is another advancement by the Mac community against this threat that accompanies not only manual instructions and help from community members, but also swiftly updated definitions for Sophos, ClamXav, VirusBarrier, and other malware scanners for detecting the malware.

 

On Apple's end, even though the extent of this infection stemmed largely from Apple's delay in issuing a patch for known Java vulnerabilities, the company finally released the patch and has further announced its own Flashback removal tool is in the works.


It's hope that these, and the continuing efforts by the Apple community, will reduce the prevalence of this infection to a minimum.

Windows users have been warned time and time again of malware hiding behind icons and extensions belonging to files associated with legitimate software - most notably PDF, DOC and XLS files.

 

In spite of that, malware peddlers have had a lot success with this simple technique. It is no wonder, then, that they would try to use it on Mac users as well.

 

F-Secure shared its knowledge about a new dropper Trojan targeting that particular segment of users, disguised as a PDF file.
