    Today, I received an AIM message from one of my friends and it was obviously fake and linked to some website. I asked him and he said he didn't send it to me. Later on, I received a message from another friend (this time a Jabber chat), which was also obviously fake and linked to a bad site (I checked and it was just registered on the 18th).

    Is it just a coincidence that two of my friends got a virus and chatted me on the same day, or did I get a virus?

    These were both from iChat, btw.

    No, you don't have a virus ... someone hijacked their accounts. Tell them to change their passwords.
