Mac OS X "Apple is developing software that will detect and remove the Flashback malware. In addition to the Java vulnerability, the Flashback malware relies on computer servers hosted by the malware authors to perform many of its critical functions. Apple is working with ISPs worldwide to disable this command and control network." Good and fairly quick response. Apple is learning.

Who here thinks Apple would have done anything if there hadn't been such an uproar about the malware?
