Well -- thanks to this information I just out of curiousity went to spotlight and searched for 'lamzev' and sure enough there it was in my cache and then stupidly I could not remember how to click to get it so show me the file in finder so I could delete it and actually tried to launch the thing. Of course even then you get a chance to say 'no - don't want to run this'.

What I really found troublesome was that it was even on my machine and the name of the file implied that I downloaded it while visiting engadget last night...
