FlashbackChecker 1.0

FlashbackChecker allows you to scan your Mac for Flashback trojan infection.

FlashbackChecker is a small piece of software that, as its name clearly states, allows you to check you Mac for the presence of Flashback malware variants. If you are using a Mac OS X-based system then you might want to make sure that it is not infected by this Trojan horse that targets Java vulnerability.

Using the FlashbackChecker is extremely easy. All you have do to is to launch the application and simply click on the button to check for Flashback infection. Once you have done that, this tool will use the detection steps described by F-Secure and it will notify you if your system is infected or not. Keep in mind that the FlashbackChecker only scans for Flashback variants, it does not remove them. Therefore, if your Mac is infected then you should immediately search for methods of removing this Trojan from it (you can find them on the F-Secure website).

Other than that, not much more can be said about the FlashbackChecker. This small application comes with a simple and straightforward interface and the absence of any settings or menus keeps the job of checking your system for Flashback infection as easy as possible.

Overall, if you are looking for a simple tool that can help you scan your Mac for Flashback infection, then you might want to give the lightweight FlashbackChecker a try.
