    I have an iMac running Mountain Lion OSX version 10.8.3. By mistake I clicked on a link in a fake facebook email and then clicked on a confirmation link in the website I got redirected to. My Mac did not ask me if I wanted to download a file, so not sure if a file was downloaded.

    How can I be sure I did not download a trojan? I also downloaded ClamXav from the App Store and ran it and everything seems ok. Is it worthwhile keeping ClamXav?
