Talk to any Mac user and they'll go on and on about how there aren't any viruses for the Mac. Next time you encounter them, just remind them of Oompa-Loompa worm. This LAN spreading worm was specifically for the Mac OS X, it made its way around through local area networks making it bypass all of that pesky internet. The biggest issue associated with this virus is that applications infected with Oompa-Loompa will not launch, although the side effect of this is actually helpful in that it stops people from starting up the infected program and spreading it even further.
