» Kaspersky Lab suspends Flashback-fighting tool

Joel Mathis at Macworld:

Kaspersky Lab on Thursday suspended distribution of its tool to remove the Flashback malware attacking Mac computers, saying the tool itself was making unacceptable alterations to user computers. A replacement is expected soon.

The lab’s Flashfake Removal Tool was suspended after Kaspersky discovered that it was erroneously removing user settings—including auto-start configurations, user configurations in browsers, and file sharing data—from infected computers.

But you should totally buy their antivirus software to protect your Mac.
