    Reset Safari, clearing your cache and cookies. Have you installed anything recently, such as MacDefender or MacSecurity?

    There has never been a virus in the wild that affects Mac OS X since it was released 10 years ago. The handful of trojans that exist can be easily avoided with some education and common sense and care in what software you install:
    The first section of that link deals specifically with the MacDefender/MacSecurity/MacProtector issue. I encourage you to read it.
    Also read the section "Why am I being redirected to other sites?" in the link above.
