While the tussle between Apple (trying to keep their minimal antivirus utility up-to-date with a current threat) and the people behind OSX/Flashback (releasing new variants – loosely speaking – of a Trojan masquerading as an Adobe Flash installer) doesn’t have quite the same drama as Apple’s tussle last year with MacDefender and its siblings in the fake AV sector, Intego has been tracking a succession of Flashback versions.
