Ramchyld, so you're running an OpenBSD? Sure, no kidding? And may I ask, do you know, if a person starting the thread in your link is running plenty of OpenBSDs along with a Debian? And he/she is not kidding either:
"I have installed a deb from a site claiming to be an Screensaver however it looked dodgy however I proceeded."
Just, FYI, try not to install outside of central repositories, especially with sudo/root and/or binary only (even from gnome-looks. website) . With major distros/BSD users have a huge selection of various software, unlike their Windows counterparts. Possible reasons of going against such practices might be either recent switch from Windows, or a low IQ.
Another "not-a-Windows-fanboy" had a similar joke http://forums.theregister.co.uk/forum/containing/1359363 . Yours is good too :)
On a serious note, I've seen names of alleged Linux viruses and trojans on some antivirus makers' websites. All of them had nothing to claim about their relevance in the wild, except for a couple from the early 90s supposedly infected tens or hundreds of Unix users.
