    I was searching the internet. Using paypal and MSN. I was also logged into a Java based game called Runescape.

    The above icon popped up in my dock for literally half a second than disappeared.

    I have seen the icon before usually when running Java programs or dual platform (Windows/OS X) programs.

    First thing that came to mind was a keylogger/virus. Should I be worried?

    Anything I can do to try to find out what it was?

    I am on a 2007 iMac 20" if that helps at all.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    How can you be so sure?

    The popularity of Macs has gone up in recent years. I am sure Mac Viruses exist...

    Also, if it was written in a language such as Java, couldn't it work for both Windows/Mac.

    Your pretty snippy aren't you
    There are zero Mac viruses. There are a few Trojans and malware. Plz download sophos virus scanner and scan your system

    If you're so sure, name one. Just one. Or, instead of wasting time in that futile effort, you can read and educate yourself to the facts:
