    This may sound stupid but i heard you can get viruses, trojans etc. through myspace like someone could post an html thing on their myspace and its adware or somthing. I am only worried about this because of how big its gotten and it could be a prime target for people that create those things. Does anyone know if it is true?

    There have been viruses posted on MySpace, the threat is the same as any other website. Some MySpace pages have videos that try to install spyware as well (but this will not be a problem if you have decent security.)

    Yes but more importantly, don't click Yes when asked to install things unless you know what they are.
