Aparently, a few of the video iPods have for some reason acidently been shiped with a virus on them:

he virus, which was been shipped on a relatively small number of Video iPods sold in stores from mid-September, does not affect Apple Macs but propagates through storage devices connected to Windows machines.

Did someone sabotage some of these iPods? It's completely bizare.

No comment.

So, did this happen on the assembly line, or what? Where have they tracked this to?

More along the lines of why Apple is a shit company, as long as their stuff works on Macs and makes them money they don't give a darn. The PC market is just something on the side that they leech money from.

And yes, I own and use Macs, and yes Microsoft is probably worse. That doesn't make Apple good, though.

Macs can (and do) have viruses. However, since OSX is based on BSD, it's s far more secure system than Windows presents, and those viruses tend to be unable to multiply or deliver their payloads in any effective manner as a result.

It happened because the I-Pod video supports a Windows video format and boom nowe it can get windows viruses.

Gotta love Microvole.

To actually ship with a virus on the Ipod though means some idiot introduced a virus into the thing at Apple's end.
