Windows virus bites Apple iPods RRS feed

  • Question

  • Apple is warning that some video iPods are harbouring a Windows virus.

    In a statement on its website Apple said that a small number of video iPods sold after 12 September are carrying the RavMonE virus.

    The company said that, so far, it had seen "less than 25 reports" of the problem affecting users.

    In a similar incident McDonalds Japan has recalled MP3 players it gave away after finding they were infected with a nasty spyware program.

     

    So what do u think??? Should we dump Windows and move to other alternative????

    Or stick so windows and fight viruses and spywares???

  • Now we will have to protect our ipods and other mp3 players in addition to windows because these malwares can spread and harm our PCs and players.

  • Yes, we do have other alternatives like linux and mac os which provide large software support enough for SOHO and students. We have wide varieties of linux available for our needs and we can easily modify them.

  • We cannot simply ignore windows as we have most of the software and hardware supporting windows which are not easily available for linux. There is only one proper way to stick to windows, and that is, to buy an authentic copy of windows and timely update it. We can also avail free technical advice in case of any problem.
