An estimated 38,000 users is still infected with the Flashback Trojan, the first malware targeting Mac users that didn't have to get their permission to be downloaded, which resulted in a 600K strong botnet of computers set on redirecting Google search results and gaming Google's ad networks to earn revenue for its creator(s).
PrivacyScan 1.2 is now available in the Mac App Store with updated privacy cleaning features and support.
The 10.8.3 update is recommended for all OS X Mountain Lion users and includes features and fixes that improve the stability, compatibility, and security of your Mac.
Adobe has pushed out an emergency Flash update that solves two critical vulnerabilities (CVE-2013-0633 and CVE-2013-0634) that are being actively exploited to target Windows and OS X users, and is urging users to implement it as soon as possible.
