AV Vendor claims 600,000 Infected Macs in Botnet

The CSO website reported: "A Mac trojan horse spotted by security analysts since last year has infected more than 600,000 Apple computers, says Dr. Web, a Russian antivirus vendor. Apple only patched the vulnerability this week, around a month after hackers began spreading the BackDoor.Flashback.39 trojan, with most infected Macs located in the United States and Canada." Now this -is- an antivirus vendor, so it's their job to make the environment seems as dangerous as possible so they can sell their wares, but still. Even if it's half or one quarter, that still means the Mac OS is now large enough to be a target, and that MAC users -also- need to get their Internet Security Awareness Training like everyone else!
