Wierd Mac Experience... Virus?

by vgrubb / November 25, 2009 12:54 AM PST

I was online last night on I selected an article and all of the sudden multiple empty windows started popping up and filled my entire screen. I had to force shut down with the button on the front of my Mac. Then little weird mouse-like voices started chanting......... no joke... this happened two twice before I had to just shut off the power strip. Everything seems fine now - but I have to say it really freaked me out. Has anyone EVER experienced anything like this? and no... I was not on drugs!

Sounds more like a JavaScript prank.
