From The Inquirer:

PRISTINE PASTEL Apple has finally admitted that Mac users have been having problems with fake anti-virus software, and will put out a software update in the next few days that should automatically find and remove the offending malware.

This admission comes after Apple's help lines and forums indicated a significant increase in users falling victim to the scam, together with reports that the cappuccino company wasn't acknowledging the problem and was not helping victims. Along with the admission, Apple also offered advice on how to avoid installing the malware and how to remove it.
