So awhile ago I used to go on the 4chan boards /mu/ and /tv/ which are nowhere near as bad as the /b/ board which I never really go on. Anyway, I found some reaction images I liked and wanted to use for future reference so I saved them onto my computer, which is a Macbook Air. They all looked like regular .jpg or

So awhile ago I used to go on the 4chan boards /mu/ and /tv/ which are nowhere near as bad as the /b/ board which I never really go on. Anyway, I found some reaction images I liked and wanted to use for future reference so I saved them onto my computer, which is a Macbook Air. They all looked like regular .jpg or .png files. Could I get some kind of virus from them? The last time I saved a picture onto my computer was I dunno, like a month ago. The only thing that ever happened was that Safari wouldn't open but I took it to the Apple Store and everything was fixed and now my computer is working fine. But I'm scared I still have a virus. Please be nice, I'm really nervous right now!

4chan Reaction Images
Thomas:
4chan is an imageboard website, which is basically a forums where you can share images, webs, or gifs. As long as you downloaded the images as .jpg or .png files, you should be fine. But if you just want to be safe, you could scan the files with an anti-virus software.
Duncan:
There are no viruses that will infect OS X. You did not have a virus. There is no need to be nervous.
John:
4chan really isn't as bad as people make it out to be, you should be fine
