    ipod virus

    this isnt as bad as it seems, it only affects less than 1% - of the Video iPods ( NOTHING ELSE!!!!!!!!!!!) available for purchase after September 12, 2006 (roughfly, and i mean roughfly, 3,000 ipods)
    the ipods carry the Windows RavMonE.exe virus, which if you know anything about virus's, isnt a big bad virus. this virus can only affects Windows computers, (mac's, linux's, other crap is fine, and currently safe form the virus.
    up to date anti-virus software which is included with most Windows computers should detect and remove it.
    there have only been 25 reports concerning this problem, so far....
    The iPod nano, iPod shuffle and Mac OS X are not affected,
    all Video iPods now shipping are virus free

    post updated, i should of made it more clear, it only affects video ipods, not touches, iphones, ishits, er what ever there called =)
    you usually cant tell if you have it (manually) but a spyware, ad ware scan can find and usually eliminate it, (its a virus form the 90's (spefically 1998 i belive, this ant no tough virus)



    close post, ipod virus have been fixed be apple/windows
