Never say never, but.....
....I have yet to hear of a credible report of a virus on the Mac. You may notice that Norton and McAfee are not marketing anti-virus programs for the Mac. Simply put, don't worry about it.
While agreeing with the previous poster,
I have to ask why you think your Mac has a virus.
Macs can get a Virus. Fact.
A Mac can get a virus just like any other operating system such as windows. The reason people think they cannot get virus is because virus are a lot less common on the Mac. Why are they less common? Because Mac own a lot less of the market share, so the people that create viruses generally focus on making them for Windows. As, and or, if the Mac becomes more popular in terms of sales, you can expect the Mac viruses to grow also. (source kindredcone.com)
being slightly less subtle than Bob,
please share the name of any virus that you know of that is effective agains OS X.
Remember that Trojans and other malware are NOT viruses.
Ouch, my toes.
Today I see folk have expanded what a virus is.
Since we can install a trojan or malware onto almost any thing, nothing seems immune. But look at your typical user and they want to change the definition of a computer virus. So far I can't find this virus but do know about the trojan and malware that we can install.
Before I write no, are you among those that call malware a virus?
