Mac Computers Targeted By New Malware

A series of recent malware attacks have targeted Macs, infecting hundreds of thousands of computers. U.S. CERT recommends that Mac users review the security updates issued by Apple to address these new threats.

New variations of the malware are emerging still. The latest variant can install itself without any prompt (such as clicking on a malicious link) and can delete traces of itself on infected computers.
