    Unless you're iPad is both jailbroken and you've purchased apps from somewhere other than the App Store or Cydia (for jailbroken phones), the chance a virus or malware is virtually zero.

    It was most likely a redirect on the website. Might even have been a bit of malware on the site, but it would not have been able to infect your iPad.
