iPods May Be Carrying Windows Virus

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 7:50 pm

Apple recently discovered that a small number - less than 1% - of the Video iPods available for purchase after September 12, 2006, left the manufacturer carrying the Windows RavMonE.exe virus.

This known virus affects only Windows computers, and up to date anti-virus software which is included with most Windows computers should detect and remove it. So far Apple have seen less than 25 reports concerning this problem. The iPod nano, iPod shuffle and Mac OS X are not affected, and all Video iPods now shipping are virus free.
