    I'm sure this is just a false positive but still, this has never happened before. When I went to sync my iPod AVG popped up with this http://yfrog.com/5n20874928j

    I'll look into that. And I found out what it was. Earlier I downloaded the pdf for Jailbreakme and loaded it into iBooks all on my iPod hoping to look at it and it synced to my laptop. That's what was flagged.

    Well it wasn't actually a virus. Just a false positive like I thought.

    It wasn't a false positive because there is an actual exploit inside of the pdf. It just didn't harm your computer and was "good" (in a way). Kudos to AVG for flagging this, imagine if that same .pdf was able to execute malicious code on your device or computer
