Kaspersky Lab Suspends Buggy Flashback Removal Tool

Sometimes the solution can cause as much mischief as the problem it's trying to correct. Kaspersky Lab said Thursday that it has suspended the distribution of its tool for removing the Flashback Trojan (sometimes called "Flashfake") that spread like wildfire in Apple's Mac computers this month. The firm pointed to a bug that's causing the tool to mess with user settings in the machines it's supposed to be fixing.
