Are You Infected With Flashback?

Rich Moguil at Macworld.com:

The bad guys clearly care more about Macs now. But we need to keep our perspective: We still see far less malware for Macs than we do for, say, Android phones.

Does this portend the end of our collective OS X virus-free arrogance? I don’t think so, at lest not yet but Moguil feels we will see more malware targeting OS X.

F-Secure has posted instructions on how to detect if you’ve been infected. You just have to copy, paste and run a few terminal commands. I have not been infected but I have to check the extended family make sure their Mac’s are all healthy.
