Default Re: More than 600,000 Macs infected with Flashback botnet

Word is that apple is considering (read: haven't done yet) releasing a tool to remove flashback. However this is after the trojan has existed for six months. In addition to this, apple ignored the first security firm that reported this to them, and as if that wasn't bad enough, they took steps to try to prevent that firm from probing the activities of this botnet.

This is proof positive that Apple is THE ABSOLUTE WORST OEM when it comes to security. Not by just a little, but by a LOT. In fact not only are they not doing anything about it, they are actively making the situation worse.
