Apple's Java update with Flashback removal tool

Mac malware that has infected approx. 600,000 computers since last year - finally got the solution, when Apple released security update for Java implementation for its OS. Flashback removal tool detects and removes the most common variants of the malware on the system. Recently survey reveals that almost 50 percent of Mac users still running the previous versions which are the main cause of it. The updated software disables Java browser plug-in and Java Web Start tools. It will prevent the auto loading of Java applets within browsers. However, users can reactivate the components through Java preferences control. All users are advised to install the updates on earliest basis.
