    Apple: Some iPods infected with virus
    Company says less than 1% of video players left the manufacturer infected with virus affecting Windows users.

    NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- A number of video iPods are infected with a virus, Apple said on its support site Wednesday.

    The RavMonE.exe virus, which affects only computers running Microsoft's Windows operating system, is on less than one percent of video iPods shipped after Sept. 12. It is unknown exactly how many video iPods are affected.

    "So far we have seen less than 25 reports concerning this problem," the company said on its support side. "The iPod nano, iPod shuffle and Mac OS X are not affected, and all Video iPods now shipping are virus free."

Apparently the European Commission and Microsoft worked out an agreement whereby Windows users who have Internet Explorer as their default web browser receive a screen that lets them know that other browsers are available. It's pretty interesting to me....
