When you get a new MacBook pro the first thing you must to to is making sure that your Mac is safe and keep it away from Trojan viruses that harm your Mac and I mean it really. Do you know that everyday there is a hundreds of Macs are getting infected with flashback Trojan and users are also using some secure programs. Today I have got for you a report but it may makes you feel scared about your Mac. As a new report from the folks at Dr.Web claims that over 600,000 Macs got infected with FlashBack Trojan, so make sure you are not..

Dr.Web says that Macs Systems got infected with  BackDoor.Flashback.39 after a user is redirected to a bogus site from a compromised resource or via a traffic distribution system. JavaScript code is used to load a Java-applet containing an exploit. Doctor Web’s virus analysts discovered a large number of web-sites containing the code.

Right now and after you heard this scary news, you may asking yourself how to protect your Mac from Trojan or any other harmful viruses. Well I think you are a very lucky man because yesterday Apple released a security fix for the Java vulnerability. F-Secure has instructions for detection and removal.
