Apple develops a tool to detect and remove Trojan.

AppleApple has said it is developing a tool to ‘detect and remove’ a Trojan that is said to have infected over half a million Mac computers.

It said that it is working with internet service providers (ISPs) to upset the command network being used by hackers to exploit the malware.Trojans are infections that can depiction computers to control by hackers.

It is Apple’s first statement on the danger. It issued patches to prevent the malware’s installation preceding week.

The two security updates were released 8 weeks after Java’s developer Oracle concerned a fix for other computer systems.

The company said that “it had fixed a Java security flaw for systems running OS X v10.7 and Mac OS X v10.6.”

Apple also said that it was working with ISPs to close down networks of servers hosted by the malware authors, which the code known as Flashback relies on to perform several of its vital functions.
