    On facebook and apparently the person who's profile it was, was obviously hacked. I used to play World of Warcraft and I was keylogged a few times from links like this I clicked on when I was on my Windows XP computer. (I'm stupid.) I was just curious if I could possibly get a virus from this on my Macbook pro? I've heard rumors that there are no viruses for Macs at the moment? I know there are a lot of threads about this, but I wanted to tell you what exactly happened.

    It's highly, highly unlikely that you got a virus as there are no viruses out in the wild for Mac OS X currently. So, you're fine, don't worry about it :)

    No Mac viruses exist. Don't be careless, and you'll avoid all other types of malware.
