    Macs can be vulnerable. Use a free antivirus scanner to see if it detects anything.

     

    About that message in particular, where do you see it? Is it a popup message, a line in the logs?

    According to WOT, the site has a poor reputation.  That is not the same as being Malware.   The owners may (and I emphasise the word may) simply be operating a business in a dubious fashion.   There is also a big difference between Malware which you can contact yourself via carelessness, and a virus which is not something you'll find on a Mac.

     

    Read the following and you may feel better.

    First, don't install Sophos. It's worthless.

     

    Second, you don't have malware.

     

    What is the complete, exact text of the message and where do you see it?

    How is Sophos worthless?

    Second, you don't have malware.

    Even if his particular example is not malware, how can you be sure there is no malware on his system?

    If its in your browser its not malware, now and then you get unresponsive scripts. You browser generally lets you stop them. Nothing to worry about. Google unresponsive script.
