    Sophos AV software is free...why not just be safe rather than sorry? Dont have unprotected sex on the inet or in real life...can lead to nasty viruses in either case ;)

    You should be fine, just stick to the site your viewing (don't click on ad's taking you off to god knows where).

    Also make sure you have a password set for all administrator account's. And never ever install anything or enter your password for things you don't trust.

    Simple: If any site tries to tell you that you should install some software, some application, some QuickTime plugin, whatever, they are out to get you. And if you give them permission to install their code on your Mac, it's game over for you. Just don't ever, ever give them permission to do this, and you are safe.
