New iPad Virus as of 12-21-12 ("Doomsday")?
just last night, I encountered a strange situation.
I googled a popular Indian restaurant using my iPad 2. (OS Version 6.0.1) I went to the official website with full confidence, thinking it was virus-free as I have visited the said website before. but then suddenly, I was greeted with a pop-up/prompt. I was surprised, but all it said was "12-21-12", thinking it was harmless, I confidently clicked "ok" (it was the only option available). then the next thing that happened, another prompt appeared, but this time it contained the words: MISSION: DOOMSDAY
I was immediately alarmed! i was startled. i couldnt close the prompt (the "x" mark on the tab was frozen.) and I had to click "ok" before I could resume. I closed safari via task manager, then went to settings and cleared history and cookies thereby closing all tabs in safari. i am aware of how easily a PC can become infected by a virus. As far as an iPad, I am not quite certain.
please help shed some light on this situation, thank you.
