Despite a Software Update and various removal tools the Flashback trojan still infects about 140,000 Macs, reports Symantec.

The statistics from our sinkhole are showing declining numbers on a daily basis. However, we had originally believed that we would have seen a greater decline in infections at this point in time, but this has proven not to be the case.
