I have a Mac that runs OS X and Windows 7. I was browsing some sites (won't mention what kind) and clicked on something and the next thing I know java_update.exe got downloaded on my pen drive, which is where I direct chrome to put my downloaded files.


I went over from OS X to Windows and deleted it from my pen drive. I never opened it. 


Am I safe?

I would say yes, you're safe. Run your scans though.
