The Invulnerability of the Mac operating system has been challenged before but the latest attempt by hackers to prove Macs can be infested has hit approximately 600,000 computers. Half of the users infected are believed to be in the United States. There is an estimate that about 12% are in the UK and maybe 19% in Canada. The virus named Backdoor.Flashback.39 and it is put on the computers when users go to a bogus site that uses Java script to upload a Java applet which then infects the computer.
Since the Mac has always been seen, especially by the Apple Company, as one that needn’t worry about such viruses the PC community has been talking a lot about this most recent issue. Many Apple users believe that this is more of a Java problem than an Apple problem but computer security is something that all users need, regardless which operating system they prefer.
