New Apple Video iPods Ship With a Virus

Apple Computer warned on Tuesday that some of its latest iPods have shipped with a Windows virus.  The company said that a small number of video iPods made after Sept. 12 included the RavMonE virus.  RavMonE.exe is a known Windows virus and up to date anti-virus software using the default settings should detect and remove it. If you do not have anti-virus software on your Windows computer, we recommend that you install one of the many available programs.  For more details, click here.  Was it on accident or was it loaded on purpose?  This virus does not affect Mac OS X.  Apple said that there was no intentional placement of the virus on the iPods. “You can rest assured of that,” Joswiak said.  But how can we be sure?  I wouldn’t put it past Steve Jobs and the Mac addicts at Apple.
