That's not entirely accurate, but its probably not. It looks like it was a popup from a web site. Do what he said with the clearing of your browser and you'll probably be fine.

Yeah it's just a pop up and sometimes scam. Use other porn "cough" websites...

Really?
Source a virus for OSX, please.
Yes, any computer can get a virus if a someone really puts the time into making one. Macs don't have a lot of viruses, really very few, but some do exist. Macs are more susceptible to Malware than viruses but both are somewhat rare. As secure as Macs are it is a good idea to still use anti virus software. Apple does a grate job of protecting us from most threats but no computer is every truly safe.

Nowhere does it say in that article that there is a virus for OSX.

Provide a source for your claim! Name a Mac virus!

You are going to split hairs now and say a trojan is not a virus?
A trojan is certainly not a virus.

You can easily avoid trojans by simply not executing unknown files from the internet.
That does not work with viruses.

Again not a single virus mentioned in this link.


I'll just drop this here, yawl keep drinking that cool-aid.

That one is only a week old, but also very interesting. Good one!
