    Hey guys, was just doing research on this topic and thought this was pretty helpfull. Though you guys might want to check it out. It's an article about finding out if you have the trojan horse (Duh, if you downloaded a codec to view porn and porn didn't play), or live with others and are not sure if they have, you might want to read this.

    Thanks

    You notice that no one has replied to your thread? The only reason I am is to tell you that this topic was posted in the wrong place, it belongs somewhere on the web where you would see topics involving say WINDOWS.

    Mac users aren't worried about trojan horses as well we shouldn't.:rolleyes:

    Except that it is a real trojan horse that does affect OS X. It's just old news.

    Thanks for that link. I know the news is a few weeks old, but I'd forgotten how to check for this trojan, so very useful.
    I've just been searching for some song lyrics via Google and many of the links it throws up lead to suspicious sites - pop-ups, pop-unders, bogus malware scans, redirects etc. It's not just porn sites that do nasty things.
