    Hi guys, thanks for the welcome messages. My first query, can an iPad get a virus in it or be spiked, if that's the right word by a malicious attack like a PC and if it can what can u do to stop it. I notice no one mentions antivirus. Luv this site btw learnt so much last night never went to bed. Felt so deliciously nawty learning about breaking jail, beepsy

    Hi anonbeep. One of the nice things about owning an iPad is that you don't need to be concerned about getting a virus onto your iPad in the manner which could cause real grief on a PC not carrying anti-virus software. You don't need any anti-virus protection as, so far, no virus has been detected on an iPad.

    The reasons for this are that the iPad's operating system is a closed system that is purely app-orientated, and Apple are careful in vetting apps before their release. Unlike PCs which operate with files within a system that is not "sandboxed" in that way, the iPad only uses files within that app itself. So, in using our iPads with that "app-centric" system, we have good assurance that this "sandbox" effect will not even let a cat in, let alone a virus;) Well, so far anyway.
    Enjoy your iPad!
    Andrew
