Over 500,000 Apple Macs caught in Flashback botnet

Over half a million Apple Macintosh computers have been infected with a variation of the Mac Flashback Trojan.

According to Ars Technica, the malware targets a known Java vulnerability that had not been patched by Apple until last week.

Startlingly, 274 of the machines caught in the botnet are believed to be based in Cupertino, California, where Apple is based.

Users are advised to immediately update Mac OSX to receive the patch.
