At Last, Flashback Trojan Removal Tool for Mac

Flashback removal tool

Previously, we showed you how to use a Flashback Trojan checker to know if your Mac is infected by the most widespread OS X malware ever. But virus removal was manual.

Now, F-Secure has released a free and easy-to-use tool to detect and remove Flashback Trojan.

  1. Download and unzip FlashbackRemoval.zip on the Mac computer you want to scan.
  2. Double-click the “FlashBack Removal” app to run the tool.
  3. Follow the instruction to check your system and clean any infections

<

p>The removal tool creates a log file (RemoveFlashback.log) on your Desktop. If any infections are found, they are quarantined into an encrypted ZIP file (flashback_quarantine.zip) to your Home folder. (The ZIP is encrypted with the password ‘infected’.)

Is your Mac clean from Flashback Trojan?
