Trojan On Macs – What To Do

I wish I could write about FileMaker 12 (which I will, soon) but there’s a more eminent issue right now: there’s apparently a new trojan out there attacking our Macs. When I read something like this, I generally just ignore it (because I have not seen a virus, malware or trojan  for Mac OS X), but I have done my research and it seems several large websites picked it up, such as Gizmodo and PC Magazine, so it would be unwise to just ignore it. According to sources, 600,000 Macs have been affected. That’s a large number to ignore. Read below, check and fix if you have it.

No worries, F-Secure has a fix for the problem.

Gizmodo has a method to check your computer; you can find it here.

I ran their check and I’m clean:

new-host-3:~ ariley$ defaults read /Applications/ LSEnvironment
2012-04-05 11:39:23.355 defaults[24956:707]
The domain/default pair of (/Applications/, LSEnvironment) does not exist
new-host-3:~ ariley$ defaults read ~/.MacOSX/environment DYLD_INSERT_LIBRARIES
2012-04-05 11:39:41.692 defaults[24958:707]
The domain/default pair of (/Users/ariley/.MacOSX/environment, DYLD_INSERT_LIBRARIES) does not exist

The check is easy; all you have to do is issue two commands in the Terminal. I highly recommend that you do it.

Also, install the Java upgrade Apple just released. Go to Software Update under the black Apple in the upper left corner and check for updates; it will show up.
