Flashback Trojan infected 600 000+ Macs
Researchers at Kaspersky Lab(Russian Antivirus company) said:
We reverse engineered the first domain generation algorithm and used the current date, 06.04.2012, to generate and register a domain name, “krymbrjasnof.com”. After domain registration, we were able to log requests from the bots. Since every request from the bot contains its unique hardware UUID, we were able to calculate the number of active bots. Our logs indicate that a total of 600 000+ unique bots connected to our server in less than 24 hours. They used a total of 620 000+ external IP addresses. More than 50% of the bots connected from the United States.
This is real nightmare for Mac owners and for the Apple company. At least 600,000 Macs worldwide have been infected, silently, by the Flashback Trojan, without any user interaction.
A piece of malware called Flashback, which has been in existence and steadily evolving for at least seven months, has infected more than 600,000 Macs worldwide, based on forensic analysis by a Russian antivirus company.
What makes this exploit outbreak especially dangerous: the owners of infected Macs didn’t have to fall for social engineering, give away their administrative password, or do something stupid. All they had to do was visit a web page using a Mac that had a current version of Java installed.
