Mac Virus Prevention

The 1 Step You Need to Take to Prevent Getting the Mac Flashback Trojan

Come to find out, Macs aren't virus-proof. There's a new trojan virus spreading through Mac computers at an alarming rate — over 600,000 could be infected now, 57 percent of those being in the US. The virus disguises itself as an Adobe Flash Player installer, and after you've installed what you think is an update to Flash, the malware then seeks out passwords and log-in information stored on your computer.

There are a few ways to find out if your computer is infected, but there is also one simple way to prevent the effects of the virus — download the latest security update from Apple! This will close any loopholes and vulnerabilities in order to keep your computer (and your information) secure.
