Dr Web spotted this attack and told about this expands of “Flashback Trojan” on Saturday. It says that more than half of those numbers are based in the US & about 20% are based in Canada.
Dr Web said “many analysts used to say that Mac operating system can’t ever be infected. This occurrence has proved them wrong, of course!”
