Hi,

It is really a good news that apple announces a new tool to help detect and remove Trojan viruses and any malicious Malware and viruses. Many personal computer users on their own are naturally not capable in detecting that their computer gets infected.

There are many viruses, Trojan and worms normally does not reveal their presence in many ways. It would be useful to Macintosh computer because it will help you secure the computer against online threats, theft, infiltration and even your personal data. By this it is a enormous help to the computer.

I hope you are convinced with my answer.

I think you are referring to the Flashback malware removal tool released by Apple to fight against the Trojan BackDoor.Flashback virus. The Trojan removal tool is recommended to all users running Mac OS X Lion that don’t have Java installed. When the Trojan Flashback malware is found, the program may require you to restart the computer to completely remove the Trojan Flashback malware.

But this doesn’t happen always and in some cases only. In case you haven’t installed it yet, download it from Trojan Flashback Malware Removal Tool. For more information about the Trojan Flashback malware that affects Mac OS X computers, please read any of the posts below:

Trojan BackDoor.Flashback is commonly known as the Flashback Trojan virus that affects Mac OS X operating systems. The first variant of this Trojan malware was detected in September 2011 by the Intego antivirus company. A modified version of the BackDoor.Flashback.39 variant of the Flashback Trojan virus has been able to infect more than 600,000 computers running on Mac OS X this is according to Dr. Web, a Russian antivirus company.

It already formed a “botnet” that is composed of 274 bots located in Cupertino, California where the Apple Inc. headquarters is located.
