Re: Trojan Horse Virus?

That's what I thought - That Macs can't get them - until I got a call from some people I do a website for, who said that their anti-virus software detected a Trojan Horse virus on the site that I created for them (on a Mac). I had a few PC friends confirm this, and after a call to the hosting service, found out that a hacker broke into the site and attached it to the main page. I re-wrote the code, and re-loaded the imaes with different names (and changed all passwords), but in the process was wondering if I had gotten it on my Mac, being that I access the site all the time. Apparently, Macworld says that Macs can now get it:

My Mac has been running a little slow, but I think it's from other things (multiple program usage). Anyhow, I was just wondering if anyone had ever encountered the virus, and what it showed up as on their HD (or how they found it)..

Thanks for your answer, though. I like to think that us Mac users are a clean, virus-free bunch....(!)
