If you want to be safe, use a webbased / anonymous email account to send him the info and prevent live connections from being established between you and him (Such as Instant Messaging programs, DCC Chat, file transfers etc.)

On top of that, keep your antivirus running, scan for spyware and trojans frequently, and have a firewall installed when you're not behind an ethernet router (most of those have "built-in firewalls"), don't visit dodgy websites and dont accept file transfers from people that you do not know or trust.
You're very likely to live hack-free for a long time.
