Apple Fights Back

In response to the wave of fake AV attacks Apple has released a security update to help rid the machines of the virus. The update to OS X 10.6.7 adds discovery and removal of the fake AV program as well providing a daily update mechanism for dealing with any new strains. The update is available here: http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1387. It’s been reported half the calls to Apple’s support line have been in response to the malware attack known as MacDefender and we strongly recommend applying this security update as soon as possible.
