Some iPod video units carry Windows trojan

Posted on Wednesday, October 18 2006 @ 20:43:09 CEST by

Apple announced it accidentally shipped a small number of fifth-generation video iPods that contain a pre-loaded Windows virus.
The iPods contain the Troj/Bdoor-DIJ trojan, which allows an attacker to access and control your system remotely. Apple has traced the source of the trojan to a single infected Windows machine at one of their manufacturers, and claims that "less than 1%" of the iPods shipped after September 12, 2006, are carrying the trojan.

Apple is apologetic, but evidently still not above taking potshots at rival Microsoft whenever the chance arises, writing "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."
