    Hi Im new here so sorry if I posted in the wrong forum or or this kind of thread isn't allowed.
    My friend has an ipod touch and he uses itunes. He recently got a virus on his computer and he says its from downloading some music from itunes.
    I dont believe him but I was wondering, can you actually get viruses from buying anything off of itunes?

    No. Bottom line. You would NEVER get a virus from iTunes or anything hosted by Apple.

    Apple would never host anything with a virus in it, it's probably the program detecting the virus, has a virus.

    I'm sure he downloaded something else, but the virus popped up shortly after he downloaded a song.
    Or he's a liar who likes to tell stories.

    Lmao, Apple - Virus

    I dont think so, Apple hosting a virus? They have no need, Sure the fat person that made your mates dodgey virus software may have put a virus on there.

    Apple probably don't have enough time to make one.
