    I have a question about security with OSX especially as it pertains to the Adium Instant Messaging Software. I know there aren't any known viruses on Macs, but can you still catch something malicious through AIM links. I foolishly clicked on a link sent by a friend in Adium and was brought to a cryptic webpage. Is there anything to worry about, or anyway to check that nothing bad happened. I'm kind of freaking out. If I just screwed somthing up on my beloved iBook.. well i just dont know what id do....

    Relax. Nothing happened. The only thing you need to worry about on a Mac are Word macro viruses (to a certain extent) and spreading viruses to PC friend. Other than that you can open webpages, viruses and the like however you like. Enjoy. :)
