You have certainly received a message from Terry that this site is distributing malware. Does that mean that by visiting this page, I am in danger of contracting a worm or something?

If I were to visit one of the sites
http://corpadsinc.com/grep/
http://mainnetsoll.com/grep/
listed on the Sucuri Security page Terry to which provided a link, would I immediately and automatically become infected?

If so, what should I do to treat or correct this infection?

Possibly on a PC yes.

You can never go wrong by doing the right thing.

There are two kinds of computer users: those who have lost data and those who are about to — backup your Mac!

But not on a Mac?

I'm still one of those kids who, when his mom ordered him not to ride his bike away from the block, would try to see how far away from home I could venture, so I have this irresistible urge to visit the two dangerous websites mentioned above.

Do I dare?

If you want me to guarantee that a Mac can't be infected, I can't. However, the cases are far and few between.

Both of the sites listed produce nothing but a blank page, and the Activity window in Safari showed nothing had loaded. Opera and Sea Monkey also showed noting but the blank page with nothing loading. Camino 2.0.2, however, did not allow me to go directly to the page, but instead posted a big red warning that this was a suspect page.

I consider that a valuable feature.
