Submission + - Apple Ships Some iPods With Windows Virus

freaktheclown writes: Apple has acknowledged that some ("25 or so") iPods shipped with a Windows virus, RavMonE.exe. From the article: "According to Apple, less than one percent of their 5.5G iPod shipments made after September 12th have a little present in the form of the RavMonE.exe virus, which propagates via mass storage devices, and purportedly had infected a PC at the manufacturer where the iPods were produced. Apple has received 25 or so reports of the problem, which they learned of a week ago, and they've 'been working around the clock to identify the problem and discover its root cause.'"
