trojan for mac

A few days ago was discovered a Trojan virus called "Flashback" who was spotted at 600,000 Mac computers and stole passwords and other personal data. This has led to a movement in Apple Java update for OS X, to remove the virus. 

Securelist publishes the findings of another Mac trojan that goes through Java. The malware called Backdoor.OSX.SabPub, captures screenshots of the status display, performs commands in the "infected computer" and connects to a remote website to transmit data. For now we do not know how is the virus, but the small number of cases, the Securelist believes that used in targeted attacks with emails containing URLs of dangerous websites.
