Much money is earned in misunderstanding.
Maybe. BTW - neither of my Macs were infected. But, this was a fairly ingenious one. From my understanding, you got a fairly legit looking "reminder" to update your adobe Flash settings. I think all you had to do was click on the link included - you didn't even have to download anything to get infected/trojaned as I understand it.
Anyhow - always go to the source with anything potentially dubious. The fake emails are getting better. I think somebody bought an English/whatever dictionary. In any event, the spelling mistakes are way down. The return addresses are starting to look semi-legit as well. In any event, go to the source.
