Hi.

Some friends on Facebook asked whether the Koobface Trojan can effect Macs too. Is this only a Windows issue?

Good question. This site said that Koobface downloads a .exe file, a file that doesn't work in Mac OS X. Even if you downloaded malware onto your Mac, it won't install without your consent (admin password). As long as you don't download questionable files from questionable sites your Mac won't be infected with any malware.
