Thank you both for your replies.
Macsworth, that's a valid point! But I think Mac users (at least my circle of friends who own Mac laptops) are taken under by the myth they are invincible on the web because they are running OSX. I think this approach is making these trojans more dangerous.
Cwa - after reading that forum again I took the steps recommended; its not the easiest thread to follow hence why I wanted to see if anyone here had found it, to see if there were any consistencies. I have Clamxav running, scanning my System and Library folders and it didn't pick anything up. According to the thread, the threat is due to a Java exploitation through Safari (which I had started using again as Chrome couldn't handle netflix website). I hadn't downloaded anything since the 31st march through to yesterday.
Im clean. Clamxav didn't find anything at the time.
Not really sure what to do now. The payload is on my computer as I gave it my password, but I have no idea what or where it is, or even if it is still on here! Paranoid..
