Over 600,000 Macs infected with Flashback Trojan

"Two months ago, a new variant of the Flashback Trojan started exploiting a security hole in Java to silently infect Mac OS X machines. Apple has since patched Java, but this was only yesterday. As of today, more than 600,000 Macs are currently infected with the Flashback Trojan, which steals your user names and passwords to popular websites by monitoring your network traffic."

Glad you came up clean! I worry about some of my Mac buds when they are not used to all the trojans we are used to in Windows. When I see them I'll post. Hope my other friends get a clean bill of health too!
