    Yes, especially if you get those Apple’s Video iPod machines that were manufactured after September 12, according to a report from CNET.


    Although the worm does not affect Macs or iPods, the worm included in the iPod units was a Windows-based worm that can propagate via mapped drives and has backdoor capabilities that can leave Windows systems being compromised. Because of this propagation feature, it was possible that during the production of the affected units, the iPods were infected by a copy of the worm already found in an infected system when the iPods were somehow hooked up or plugged in for testing purposes or whatnot.


    It’s a good thing though that Trend Micro detects this as WORM_SIWEOL.A since May 2006, and customers can be assured that this free-worm-in-an-iPod will not get in the way of their listening sprees.
