    Recently I downloaded a song from playlist.com when I noticed that my copmuter was starting to lag. Then I got a warning saying that a serious threat had infected my computer. I then got another message about someone trying to gain remote access to my xp. It showed me their I.p. I got very scared and quickly turned off my computer. Then when I turned it back on I got message saying something about a worm on my computer and it said something about it collecting my emails and redistributing them. This is when I got very scared. I was just wondering if they can get my personal information such as passwords. And also I was wondering if I am using Internet wireless from my iPod with my home I.p can someone still hack me. Please someone help. I am a very paranoid person and I'm very scared at the moment and would love to know if I'm safe or not.

    I would run Malwarebytes to see if that cleans it up.

    Also run any AV you have installed.

    And also I am scared to turn the computer on because in the message it said if I continued to use the computer unprotected that others could get access to my computer

    i dont blame you for being paranoid. but they might, might not. they will have a much harder time getting ur touch becuz it s hard for them to get into osx, and guess what touches/iphones run, a watered down osx...

    What is the worst thing that they can do if they get access?
