I think it was a legit infection and that two or three people received a malware attack would seem to confirm that. I don't think there's anything you need to do except use EXTREME caution if, God forbid, something similar were to happen again that causes the warning to appear (in Firefox and Chrome...it did not appear in IE, which is another issue altogether). Otherwise, the only other advice I have is what's already been mentioned and is good practice for anyone using the internet (not just in the situation we had): have antivirus and anti-malware scans automatically run on a frequent basis and ensure the definitions are always kept up to date.
GIK and I have some work to do that is going to take some time and goes beyond "just" this malware attack, but one of the end results of that work, once completed, is to ensure something like this never happens again.
