If I use my mac naively (like DLing music and other things through Frostwire), am I likely to get a virus on it? I've heard that there aren't any viruses for this version of OS X, but who knows.
Also, I know that macs can't get windows viruses, but if I dl a file with a windows viruse in there.. does it just stay dormant or does it not even download? Can I pass it on to other windows users?
I was under the impression that if you're running windows on your mac, you are susceptible to windows viruses, so you need to make sure you have some sort of virus protection.
As for OS X, i think you probably could get a virus, but I've downloaded from the same sorts of things you're describing, and I haven't had a problem yet (it's been almost 2 years).
