"According to Russian antivirus firm Dr. Web, over 600,000 Macs worldwide are infected with the Mac flashback trojan. The trojan can be installed if you visit a malicious website, and it will attempt to connect your Mac to a bonnet."
Most of the infected machines appear to be in North America, with 57% of them in the US and 20% located in Canada. The vulnerability was patched, but in case you didn't get it done in time and are wondering if you have it, there are a couple of sites that can help you. You can either visit F-Secure's website and they can walk you through the process to check and clean it, or you can check your machine via Dr. Web's site. Dr. Web also has a free Mac App if you prefer using that to check your machine.
