Is someone scamming me? [Mac spyware filter]

My friend borrowed my computer, and while she was out getting coffee some strange dude came into the shop and asked if he could charge his cell phone on the laptop using a USB port. She let him! My immediate thought was "oh god spyware scam." Now Google says my computer "may be sending automatic traffic." I ran MacScan (it's an old Powerbook G4) but nothing turned up. Silly me, I hadn't set save points yet so I can't turn back time either. What did this guy do to my computer? How can I protect myself?
