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. Currently, it appears that the number of infected computers has tapered off, but remains around the 140,000 mark.

If you haven't already, we strongly recommend performing a Software Update on your Mac and/or using the removal tools provided by Apple and others.
