Apple has released an update for Mac OS X that addresses the recent scourge of Mac malware.
The plague of rogue AV scareware apps has been a source of controversy and heated debate over the past few weeks. Mac users are trained to believe the OS is impervious, making them easier targets for social engineering attacks like MacDefender.
Apple initially stayed out of the fray, and directed support techs not to get involved with eradicating the malware from Mac systems, but eventually Apple acknowledged the threat and developed this update to address the problem.
Mac users should download and apply the update immediately.
