Apple moved swiftly to control the ransomware after it was first informed about the issue on March 4th, revoking the certificate it uses, and making it so the infected app will no longer install. The Transmission Project, which makes the open-source app, has also released a new, clean version of its software, and has recommended users upgrade as soon as possible. In the meantime, for those unlucky enough to be hit by a world-first, security experts suggest restoring a Mac system backup from before you were infected.
