    There are no viruses in the wild that run on current Mac OS X. There are very few trojans, which are primarily from pirated software.

    Apple has a Safari extension page. Uses trusted sites to improve your security. You can also download a program like iAntivirus (free) and scan the file. There may be no viruses to worry about, but there could be a trojan.
