Flashback Virus in Apple can be fixed

Hello Braxton,

There are several ways to remove Flashback from your Mac and some of them are quite complicated or simply download Apple's new release of Java security update that automatically removes the Flashback trojan. It is recommended for every Mac user to install this update even if you have just previously checked your system. To get the update, simply download the update Java for OS X 2012-003 from software update within the apple menu. Installing this update requires no manual removal and it further protects you from future potential threats.

I hope this helps.
