iPad 2 Redirect Virus?

Posted By: Susoni

In Response To: Constant redirection on iPad (Lulu)


Not sure if this is the problem but I've read of many users who get malware from apps... Especially free apps.. .. What, exactly, are you seeing?? What kind of ad??? Sometimes it is the website that is causing it. Since we've been hacked.. All bets are off.. Hobie is combing the system day and night.. Is it only RMN that this happens with??

Hope this helps..

**************************************************************

I have had it as well. There was a thread on this a couple of weeks ago but I don't remember there being a solution.

I cleared history and cookies and haven't had it happen again.
--------------------

My iPad 2 has recently started redirecting me from known and trusted websites, through to an advert definitely not associated with the websites I'm directed from.

I've cleared the history, internet data and restarted the iPad, but it is still happening.

The only option left would be to completely wipe the iPad (as I haven't got a backup available on iTunes). I'm hesitant to do this however as this seems a backward way of fixing the issue. Also, as I'm not sure how I got this malware, there's a chance of it happening again.

Is there any other way to stop these issues?
I've read a number of replies to similar topics, but they mainly seem to be from people who've never had the issue saying it's impossible for an iPad to get a virus. The most open minded ones seem to suggest a problem with the router and not the iPad itself, however I've been experiencing this issue over both 3G and WiFi.

It seems as well that this issue has been occuring since iOS 5 (from reading similar threads), however I'm experiencing this on iOS 6, so it doesn't seem as if this loophole has been fixed.

Is Apple aware of this issue? And is there an easier way to fix this than to completely wipe the iPad?

iPad 2, iOS 6

------------------

It'll be said to the device's dying day that iPads can't get viruses. And that's using hte strict definition of a virus being a malicious program that propogates itself across the operating system and infects program after program.

And in that, they're right. there is no known iOS virus in the definition of a virus. The 'sandbox' nature of the ipad, where there is no overall file manager system and no way for apps to talk to each other without your interaction (you sending files between apps) prevents this.

That said, it can be infected with malware in the form of a poorly screened app or is vulnerable to webpage hacks (people that hack google to give you good looking results that, if you look at the link, all resolve to russia or china). You can click on malicious links in e-mails and be sent to bad sites even if the bad programs there likely can't run (most viruses are .exe files which simply will not run on the iOS)

It can also be vulnerable to adware tied to a free app.

have you installed any new free apps lately? Or clicked on any online ads?
Have you tried to delete any and all Safari settings? Remove any cookie that may be lurking in there that's sending you the redirect?

It is possible that your router or maybe even your ISP provider's system has been compromised. Does your issue happen no matter where you are? Try turning off your 3G and finding some different wifi to access, does the issue replicate itself? If so, then it may be your device. But if you access the net through a new source and don't see the redirect, then the problem is likely with a router or server that's beyond your immediate control.

-------------
This has happened to me twice now in the last 24 hours, once in safari and once in dolphin HD.

In the safari one I clicked a link in an email from a legit website I visit often and a couple of seconds after the page finished loading it redirected me to a porn website ("f*ckbook for ipad" or something like that).

With the dolphin HD one, I opened my ipad after my girlfriend had been using it (she showed me a video on youtube so no she wasn't watching porn on it) and the tab in dolphin was showing what appeared to be an ad which looked like an app store listing for "badoink" and which had a very graphic picture of a woman with a dildo included.

I've had a quick google and the forum below shows other people have had the "badoink" fake app store problem too.

http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1381277

I am concerned that this has happened twice now and in two different browsers. Can anyone recommend anything I can do to stop it happening? I'd prefer to avoid it happening while I'm showing a friend or family member something!
