Submission + - Apple issues Trojan removal tool (bbc.co.uk)

mutube writes: "Apple has released a fresh Java update that it says removes the Flashback Trojan on infected computers. The malware installs itself if a user visits a malicious website, exposing the computer to control by hackers. The update's release comes two days after Apple said it was tackling the issue, and a week after an anti-virus firm warned 600,000 Macs were infected. Kaspersky, has recalled its own Trojan-removal tool after it affected some user settings."
