Some iPods Shipping with Viruses

Apple has publicly apologized for including a virus on some of the latest iPods. While only 25 have been detected so far, this is still a disturbing trend. Apparently another unnamed manufacturer makes the iPods and is responsible for the infection.

One interesting quote is, "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."

CNet is running the article.
