We had Windows virus, next Mobile virus now its MP3 Player virus. It goes on and on.......:D

Creative is in the embarrassing position of having accidentally shipped 4,000 Zen Neeon MP3 players in Japan with a file that contains the Wullik.B or Rays e-mail worm. The good news is that the player won't infect owners' machines just by connecting it to the PC; in order to be vulnerable to the virus a user would have to browse the player files while connected to the PC and actually click on the infected file. Are things getting so bad that soon we will need anti-virus software for our MP3 players? Clearly, someone forgot to do a virus scan before loading the 4,000 players with an infected file.
