    So today I was just browsing through topics and stuff and I clicked on this link with door knocks sounds. (link here: http://puu.sh/iHbP6.jpg) The link had no image and just door knocking sounds and I just quit the tab. Then I refreshed the page and noticed some comments mentioning keyloggers, others saying NOT TO CLICK IT, and others saying the door knocking scared them. So I have a mac and I have researched that I cannot get a keylogger simply by clicking on a link on a mac. Is this true? All I did was click on the link, and exited tab. I did not log into anything nor download anything and I didn't get a popup of any downloads either. So could I have gotten a keylogger simply by clicking on the link?

    EDIT: oh crap 3/63 in Virustotal https://www.virustotal.com/en/url/b...14743680e4f0032153c85a07c1067f9bbb1/analysis/

    COULD IT BE SOMETHING BAD

    If you are infected with a key logger, DetectX ( http://sqwarq.com/detectx/ ) may help determine such and counsel re techniques for removal.

    Nah.... you are fine. As long as you did not enter your password and allow anything to install, what you saw was just a nasty popup.

    Install KnockKnock, it will reveal whats persistent and reference it against VirusTotal`s database.

    "Malware installs itself persistently, to ensure it is automatically executed each time a computer is restarted. KnockKnock uncovers persistently installed software in order to generically reveal such malware."
