Warning: Flashback Trojan a risk for Mac users

Macintosh malware that has been around since late 2011 has resurfaced and could put your Mac at risk. Initially, it masqueraded as a fake Adobe Flash Player plug-in installer, but now, all you have to do is go to a malicious Web site containing Flashback with Java installed and you could give Flashback the opportunity to install itself on your Mac. 

As of April 19, over 250 Mac infections have been reported on campus. See the Apple website for further information on protecting your Mac. If you have any questions, contact the Help Desk  at 416-978-4357 for assistance.
