For anyone with a Mac, you are NOT immune from viruses! My Sophos anti-malware software has just blocked an incoming virus from a website (not email, as I don't use email on the Mac). A complete scan found no others, but nonetheless there are bad guys out there targetting Macs.

I don't know what website it was as I had several open at the time. I can look up what the virus was if it's of any help. I recommend people to "like" the Sophos FB page as they give a lot up up-to-the-minute useful information.
