http://news.cnet.com/8301-1009_3-57409619-83/more-than-600000-macs-infected-with-flashback-botnet/?t...

 

Please go thru all the steps which I mentioned in my previous postings. That will help you.

 

Another way to fool the virus is to run Linux on a virtual machine.

 

If it got infected in the virtual machine you can just delete it.

 

Firstly run patches for the Apple Security Updates, Disable all your Java and Flash in any browser you run.

 

Java and Adobe Flash are too vulnerable in security!!!

 

Use No script add on.

 

Check all the steps which F-Secure recommended.

 

Do check the F-Secure's famous weblogs. It's very informative!!!
