    It may not be a virus. If you only ever access that account from OS X, then it's definitely not a virus. One of two things could have happened here.

    1) You downloaded and installed a Trojan. This is very likely if you tried torrenting something like Photoshop or iWork. It's not a virus because you installed it yourself, but it made you think it was a legit program.

    2) Someone hacked your email account. This is likely if you have a weak password (123456 or password, or admin, or something like that) or if you answered any emails asking you for your login data (even if it seemed to be from your email provider)
