Kaspersky Flashfake Removal Tool description


Kaspersky Flashfake Removal Tool will detect and remove Flashfake/Flashback trojan from your Mac.

Flashfake is a family of OS X malware that first appeared in September 2011. Previous variants of the malware relied on cyber criminals using social engineering techniques to trick users into downloading the malicious program and installing it in their systems. However, this latest version of Flashfake does not require any user-interaction and is installed via a “drive-by download,” which occurs when victims unwittingly visit infected websites, allowing the Trojan to be downloaded directly onto their computers through the un-patched Java vulnerability. The Trojan was being used to hijack victims’ search results inside their web browsers to conduct a “click-fraud” scam.

Although no other malicious activities have currently been detected by the Trojan, the risk is still significant because the malware functions as a backdoor into users’ computers, which means the cyber criminals behind Flashfake can easily issue new, updated malware - capable of stealing confidential information such as passwords or credit card details - and install it onto infected machines.

Although Oracle issued a patch for this vulnerability in early 2012, Apple delayed in sending a security update to its customer base until 2 April. Users who have not updated their systems with the latest security should install and update immediately to avoid infection.
