iPods Infected with Virus

October 18, 2006

As if worries about protecting our PCs, laptops, PDAs and mobile phones from pesky viruses wasn't enough, now we have to cast a gimlet eye on our iPods. According to a recent story that appeared on cnn.com, the RavMonE.exe virus, which affects only computers running the Windows OS, has been reported on a number of video iPods shipped after September 12th.

Apple has reported about 25 cases of infection, and apparently this virus doesn't impact owners of the iPod nano, shuffle, or Mac-based iPods.

For more info and instructions on how to remove the virus, Apple has set up a special page on its support web site.
