This was talked about on the podcast i find it funny how apple and creative must be thinking on the same wavelength
Apple computer has confirmed that some video iPods sold after Sept. 12 were shipped with a virus that affects Windows comptuer. They said on its Web site that fewer than 1 percent of the music players contained the RavMonE.exe virus. It had fewer than 25 reports of the problem. The issue does not affect iPod nanos or shuffles, Apple said. It also said the issue was discovered at one of its manufacturing partners.
"As you might imagine, we are upset at Windows for not being more hardy against such viruses, and even more upset with ourselves for not catching it."
