A Mac developer has posted a tool that detects a Flashback malware infection on Apple's computers. Last week we posted about, More than 600000 Macs system infected with Flashback Botnet. That's slightly more than 1 percent of all 45 million Macs in the world still a relatively small number, but a worrisome one for Mac users, as the tally of infected machines continues to grow

Apple has released new security updates that check for and remove the common Flashback malware variants.
I highly encourage Snow Leopard and Lion users to run Software Update and get the official Apple tool.
