Run for you lives!

News.com brings us a report that after years of toiling, researchers have finally created The Lamest Virus Evah™!

Kapersky Lab reports first iPod virus, sort of (tip o’ the antlers to Paolo and Matt Huber).

It only runs if you have Linux installed on your iPod.

And you have to execute it manually.

And it doesn’t really do anything.

RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!

The Macalope particularly liked Kapersky’s comment that

“Such viruses are created to demonstrate that it is possible to infect a specific platform…”

You know. The Linux on iPod platform. The LiPod.

Just like it sounds.
