Virus for iPod

Yep, we’ve ended up with something like virus for iPod. Well… Actually it is just a proof-of-concept, and one should have some nerve to call it a “virus” – you have to work hard to contaminate your iPod with it:

  1. 1) You have to have iPod (Who doesn’t? Even I have one =) )
  2. 2) Flush its own firmware and flash it to Linux (Whew… What a strange idea…)
  3. 3) Finally, catch the virus.
  4. the piece of code does not do anything wrong, only issues some text, yet it proves possibility of viruses even on this platform, proved by Kaspersky.
  5. Who’s next?
