Default Russian AV company claims 600,000 Macs infected by Flashback - Update

From http://h-online.com/-1517180

Quote:
A Russian AV company, Dr. Web, says it has conducted research to determine the spread of the Flashback trojan on systems running Mac OS X and says that 550,000 systems are infected, mostly in the US and Canada. A later update raised that number to 600,000 and claimed 274 infected systems in Cupertino, California.

Note that the "infection" occurs because people were duped into thinking it was a flash update. They had to download, install and give permissions to that program for any of this to happen.

"Give it to me now and let someone else deal with the problems." is the general consensus of the public.
