Just recently sources confirmed that over 600,000 Mac’s were infected with the malware, Flashback. It only took a couple of days for third party sources to come up with a removal tool while Apple also released a Java security update.
As a result from the removal tools, the infections decreased from 600,000 to 270,000 within a few short days. This dramatic decrease has offered a sense of security for Mac users. However, there are still a few hundred thousand that are still infected.
