    I've read a lot lately about viruses popping up on macs. They really never specify whether it applies to ipads as well. Is antivirus software necessary and if so does anybody recommend one. Thanks

    Their is no antivirus made for iPad at this time. Jail breaking is only way to get hacked but if your smart about it you should be ok. do not open weird e-mail's from people don't know and their Links.

    "Comment applies to a jail breaker who has downloaded any tweak, such as Open SSH, that allows for remote access to the iDevice. Once that tweak is installed, you MUST change the default root and mobile passwords. Since everyone who would hack your iDevice knows that default password, changing it stops any attempt to get access".

    "The problems/"malware" mentioned is ONLY caused because people did not change that default password. Change the password and your jail broken iPad is as safe as a stock one".
