    If you are worried, run iAntiVirus and remove anything it comes up with.

    That too. There are so many viruses out there and they can be anywhere.

    If you're looking at porn on a Mac, the only thing that's going to have a virus is the girl you're looking at. There are no viruses for Macs.

    True, but there is Malware and Trojans. Let's get back on point to the thread, guys.

    .EXE is the executable file for Windows. Not for Mac. Anything with .exe will not run on Mac OS X

    .DMG is the Disk Image Mac OS X uses.

    I think the OP means he would not be worried if it was a .exe file (as it is a mac) but he got scared because it started downloading a .dmg file which could harm is computer.

    If you didn't give it your admin password, I wouldn't be all that worried.

    Yeah, you need to authorize it by giving a password, so nothing to worry about.
