Half a million APPLE computers hit with 'Flashback Trojan'...
More than half a million Apple computers have been infected with the Flashback Trojan, according to a Russian anti-virus firm.
Its report claims that about 600,000 Macs have installed the malware - potentially allowing them to be hijacked and used as a "botnet".
The firm, Dr Web, says that more than half that number are based in the US.
Apple has released a security update, but users who have not installed the patch remain exposed.

The higher the market share (now double digit), the more advantageous it is for these scum to hurt as many people as possible.

Just the beginning.

does anyone think anything is fishy with the route proposed by Dr. Web to discover if you got the virus?
