Mac Defender Security Update Released by Apple

A few weeks ago some malicious software was found to be infecting Max OS X. The software is called Mac Defender and was installed by enticing users in to thinking they had a virus. The Mac Defender program then asked for CC details to get rid of the virus.

Apple has now released an update for OS X that can be downloaded via the software update menu. Once installed, the security update will rid the virus and give a prompt if you are trying to download it again in the future.

Full details on the update and what it does can be found over on the Apple website.
