Ok, boys & girls, time to put the Flashback in the grave. Java Patch 2012-003 is out, meant to be a Flashback killer. Install NOW.


This Java security update removes the most common

variants of the Flashback malware. This update also configures the Java web plug-in to

disable the automatic execution of Java applets. Users

may re-enable automatic execution of Java applets using

the Java Preferences application. If the Java web plug-in

detects that no applets have been run for an extended

period of time it will again disable Java applets. This update is recommended for all Mac users with Java installed. For details about this update see: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5242
