I'm really curious what made me "immune." I updated Transmission last Thursday or Friday to the version supposedly infected. I learned about the malware Sunday and immediately checked for the reported signs of an infected computer, of which I had none. I immediately upgraded to the clean version and as of last night, my Mac mini is still clean.

Comment Re:BATCH SCRIPT REMOVE BAD WIN7 UPDATES (Score 1) 240

I did this just a few days ago (not the script, but removed all these KBs by hand).
