    While using my Wi-Fi iPad today, a pop-up appeared:
    www2.pcdefense70.co.cc "Warning! Your computer is at risk of malware attacks. We recommend you to check your system immediately. Press OK to start the system now..."

    Is this a hoax or malware attack?

    How do I get rid of the pop-up screen?

    Thanks

    Sounds like a hoax. I would stay away from that site. There are lots of reputable places to buy stuff, and that isn't one.

    Well, a iPad reboot took care of getting rid of the pop-up "Click here" screen in Safari.

    Now I need to find an add-on for Safari (or for Google search on the iPad) to warn of attack or bad sites.

    Don't bother. You can't install anything on the iPad (add-ons, drivers, etc). The only things you can install are apps from the AppStore.

    This is surprising since it is so difficult to infest the Mac OS vs the Windows OS.
