    Just spreading the word since I haven't seen a peep about this either here or at iMore. I would think it is relevant since many iOS users are probably also Mac users. There's several active trojans targeting Mac computers, one botnet has over 600,000 devices under its command and a new variant is said to be spreading. The exploit has been found on over 4 million websites.

    Until Apple's patch is released, here's how to check for and remove the trojan manually, if detected.

    Good Luck.

    Yeah. Saw this yesterday. My macs are clean and patched.

    Disappointing that Apple knew about this but only release the patch earlier this week after it became public.
