  1. .. less than 1% of Windows/iPods are affected.

    The virus propagates itself using mass storage devices. It affects only Windows computers.
    Up-to-date antivirus software "which is included with most Windows computers
    should detect and remove it," the company explained.

    sorry, I just don't care -- the point here is the security risk -- not a debate
    on which/who/what is better. Please open another thread if that's your interest.
