If you have yet to equip your Mac with Apple's latest Java update to protect it from the Flashback trojan said to infect over 600,000 devices, now might be a good time to do it. Apparently, there's another trojan making rounds on unprotected Macs.

Graham Cluley, a senior technology consultant at computer security firm Sophos explained in an April 13 blog post that this new backdoor trojan, dubbed "Sabpab," connects to a control server using HTTP and follows the orders of hackers who can enter a victim's computer, upload and download files, run commands and take screenshots.
