Flashback infections are increasing! Flashback infections are decreasing! Flashback infections are staying the same!
So which is it?
Here’s the backstory: As we reported previously,Mac users have been hit with a nasty bit of malware that requires absolutely nothing on their part – save for visiting malicious websites – in order for Flashback to enter their systems. It’s easily preventable, so long as one disables Java in one’s browser or updates Java to the most current version. In fact, keeping one’s Apple system current with all of its updates is one of the best ways to thwart any kind of malware, not just Flashback.
