As good as right. There have been proof-of-concept viruses for UNIX, but
AFAIK no one has ever been found in the wild. And most of them rely on
the operator doing something stupid (like running an un-trusted binary
as root).

That doesn't mean FreeBSD is invulnerable though. If you're running a
workstation there are several things you should do IMHO.

1) Enable one of the firewalls that are available on FreeBSD (I like
   pf). This firewall should be set up to block incoming connections.
2) Do not enable any services that you don't need.
3) Disable all logins that don't come from the local machine.

It is fine to create those files. It is just not used by default.
