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