Kaspersky provides web-based Flashback checker for Macs

Flashback and FlashFake are malware that has infected over 600,000 Mac computers. You can find your Mac’s UUID and enter it into Kaspersky’s site at http://flashbackcheck.com┬áto see if your computer is known to be a part of the Flashback botnet. The checker will tell you if you are infected or not. If you are clear, it will offer you a trial for Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2011 for Mac.

If you are found to be infected, you can use Kaspersky’s free FlashFake removal tool. The site will also check your version of Java to test if you are running a vulnerable version and recommend that you run system update if you are.
