    Well today i was syncing my ipod or backing up and i noticed that norton antivirus pops up, saying that it blocked a bloodhound. Noticing from the location it seems that it was the ipods backup. Yes this is the latest version itunes 10 which i seem to have a lot of problems with it.

    Could it be the possibility of your Jailbreak causing the problem? Do you have errr... "Free" apps installed?

    This actually happened before when somehow a virus got onto some classic iPods that shipped out.

    Could be a false-positive?
