Most people consider the Mac to be impossible to virus. While it is a lot more difficult it can still be done.

The Flashback/FlashFake Trojan virus was specifically designed for the Mac. It first appeared in 2011, and is now making a comeback. It adds itself in as a browser add-on and will steal your information if left in place.

Anti-virus companies are stating that as many as 600,000 Mac systems have been infected.

Please make sure your virus scanner is up to date. Scan your system, and then make sure you have the latest update from Apple for your OS. That will prevent the Flashback/FlashFake Trojan from loading.
