    Hi there,

    Yesterday I opened my MSN (I'm using Office 2008) and I received a notification stating that wants to add me on MSN. I clicked allow, and this morning "she" was online. I asked this person who she was, and she responded with "hows it going?"

    I didn't reply, but two minutes later while I was surfing Safari, I received the following notification:

    I've never had this happen before. I restarted my MacBook and now things seem to be running normally.

    I would like to know if this alert was caused by a virus. I strongly suspect that it was associated with the bizarre MSN behaviour I had just witnessed, but I hope that it is not the case. Any advice would be very welcome! (PS: I deleted that address and blocked it from my MSN.)

    Don't panic, it won't be a virus. MSN Messenger cannot pass data to your Safari session unless you allow it in some way (like clicking on a web link in MSN). However, you did the right thing blocking that address. It was probably some guy in a Nigerian scam office about to feed you a sob story.

    Thanks very much. This has eased my concern considerably--I was mostly worried about an attacker's ability to access my personal information. However, there is still the issue of the Kernal Panic...what happened there? Was it just a bizarre coincidence?

    I would say it was a coincidence. Hopefully just a one-off. Anyone on these forums that tells you they haven't had at least one of those things hasn't been a Mac user long.

    Yes, I agree,

    I've had two, one due to a faulty dial up router :eek:

    It would have created a log if you're interested, Applications > Utilities> Console, then look for crash reporter.

    This is the log it gave me, but I can't make heads or tails of it. Can anyone shed some light?
