Mac virus affects over 600,000 Apple OSX Products PDF Print E-mail
Macs pwned again!Macs don't get Viruses ... Don't believe the hype!
Since May 2011 (and before!), Macs have been on the international crime radar and are all too vulnerable to malware and virus attacks.  

Doctor Web—a Russian anti-virus vendor—conducted research to determine the scale of spreading of Trojan BackDoor.Flashback that infects computers running Mac OS X (indipendantly confirmed by Kaspersky Labs, a leading anti-virus vendor). Now BackDoor.Flashback botnet encompasses more than 600,000 infected machines, most of which are located in the United States and Canada. This once again refutes claims by some experts that there are no cyber-threats to Mac OS X. <ABC News video>

Apple has released a security patch to address this issue.

More in-depth commentary from ZDNet.
