Do you mean you saw an entry in your log indicating an attempted access to your site by a virus or worm?
If so, this is common. There are many worms and malicious scripts out there that constantly trying to spread themselves via vulnerabilities in web server software etc. I doubt they will find such a vulnerability here at DreamHost.
Since there isn't much you can do about these attempts, just ignore the log entries.
