Using my ipad1 I opened a link sent by a friend wh/ took me to Fox News page. Then got email from him saying his google act was hacked & not to open link. What can I do to protect against anything malicious that might have come from this link

iPad, iOS 6.1, Possible virus or worm?

    Well, if it was going to do anything to your iPad, its too late now, isn't it?


    First off, it did not install anything on the iPad. Can't do that from a web site on an iOS device. The only thing you might consider is to clear your browser cache and data: Open Settings app > Safari:

    1. Clear History
    2. Clear Cookies and Data
    3. And if you are really the paranoid type, Advanced > Website Data > Remove All Website Data.
