    Over 600,000 Macs infected with Flashback Trojan

    Not a mac owner but this seemed to be quite a story

    The Flashback Trojan was initially spotted in September 201, but a earlier this year it began exploiting "a security hole in Java to silently infect Mac OS X machines".

    Looks like there was a patch released a day or so ago but the report is saying that there's over 600,000 Macs infected, of course the majority are in the US with Canada and the UK taking second and third place in the volume of infected Macs ranks

    You just don't understand the Apple Experience. From time to time, they give you the PC experience for your benefit, so you can be reminded of all of the special things about owning Apple.

    did you really just ask if Bo has his cwp?

    he shot his name into the application form from 1000 yards... while on a Segway... One handed with his USP in .45ACP... While doing pushups AND eating his sandwich...
