What is Flashback

Tips & Tricks

What is Flashback, and how does OpenDNS protect me?

The Internet is abuzz with news about Flashback, because until very recently it was commonly believed that Macs are largely immune to malware and attacks. Some reported numbers about infections are as high as 600,000, with a reported 56% of those infections on U.S. soil. Flashback was first discovered in September of last year, when it was designed to look like a Adobe Flash update (hence its name). But as of this month, it’s now infecting users that visit compromised websites. Once infected, the malware will attempt to connect to a server for command and control. Flashback has a built-in algorithm, which calculates the domain for C&C.
