I just read this: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-17623422

 

It includes a link to this: http://www.f-secure.com/v-descs/trojan-downloader_osx_flashback_i.shtml -- apparently details about “how to confirm if a machine is infected and how to remove the Trojan” – but it seems to jump straight in with “Manual disinfection is a risky process; it is recommended only for advanced users” – and instructions to remove the malware, rather than just checking to see if infected. I’m not an advanced user. Where do I find "Terminal"? Where do I begin, or just continue burying my head in the sand, believing that Mac is perfect?
