How safe is minecraft from the standpoint of getting viruses? My little brother wants to download minecraft, but I don't want it to damage my computer, how safe is it? Like what measures does the company go to to prevent people from hacking their servers?

You can't get a virus from Minecraft if you download it from the proper website and if people hack their servers and their websites and all that sort of stuff the only thing that is in danger is personal details. (Might wanna watch out if you download anything extra like texture packs or mods from dodgy websites.)

So your computer is absolutely safe as far as I know and you don't need to worry :) Hope I helped and also that I am actually right :?

Minecraft can be downloaded @ Minecraft.net, this is the Official Website.
As TheFordium said above, as long as you download something malicious, you should be fine. :)

Just make sure you don't give out your password!
