I think its been a bit longer than that...

I think the last actual virus I saw on a Mac was the Word macro virus,  
and that was 1995(?). I know we've been hearing about that imminent  
threat since at least then.

Just out of curiosity, when was the last time any of you actually saw  
a Mac infected with a worm or virus "in the wild"?
