Video iPods infected with Virus

I have just been browsing some Mac sites looking out for Product releases that may be coming up and stumbled on this gem. Video iPods were shipped infected with the (incorrectly named) RavMonE.exe virus/Spyware.

Obviously Apple were keen to highlight this would only affect windows iPod users. In there statement.

“We are upset at Windows for not being more hardy against such viruses”

oh they did also say

“and even more upset with ourselves for not catching it”

read the full info here.

Read about the virus here.

Apparently less than 1% of iPods were infected, even so that sounds like many millions of iPods to me.

There are so may conspiratorial ideas that could evolve around the idea of Apple ‘finding’ spyware on one of its portable devices, and that is happens to only affect windows users…..
