I was trying to stream a sports game tonight and accidentally clicked on a website I had no interest in going to(streamhd.eu). Upon accessing the website it immediately downloaded a file called flashplayer.dmg to my computer. Then I refreshed the page and another one downloaded. I immediately deleted the files and emptied my trash without opening either file. I looked on chrome and saw the website that the file downloaded from was something called makeymcmacface. Should I be worried about a potential security risk? I'm currently on a mac so I don't know what steps I need to take if any. Thanks!

macs can get viruses and malware too no matter how many apple users tell you so you should see if there are any free malware or virus scanners out there you can use

malwarebytes is a good one to scan for threats

Gotcha, thanks! I do have malwarebytes that's searching now. If I didn't open the file or install anything should I be safe?
