Internet security specialist McAfee has released a new version of McAfee Stinger, which targets two Windows-based threats that have been found on video iPods and MP3 players.

Stinger is a free standalone utility tool that can detect and remove specific viruses, including the W32/RJump.worm, also named RJump.worm and the W32/QQPass.worm, also named QQPass.worm. Protection for both threats has been available in McAfee products since September 25, 2006 and August 15, 2006.

The software is available for free download from the company.

"While the QQPass.worm and the RJump.worm have both been around for a while, they are still making their way into the hands of consumers through MP3 players and video iPod devices that were initially infected with the virus," said Joe Telafici, director of operations, McAfee Avert Labs.
