Computer Security & Viruses/Hi Thorig


A friend of mine has had trouble with her email acct.  Her acct is sending out spam.  I told her to change her email password and install anti-virus sw and I would be glad to lend her my "Norton360 CD for the PC".  However, then she told me that she is using an ipad.  so I'm not sure what to tell her with regards to my advice about anti-virus sw.  Does she need it? (I think an ipad won't take my "Norton360 for the PC" right? If she needs it, is the only way for her to get it is to download it from the Internet?)


If she is using Ipad, the possibility of infecting virus to her iPad is v.very low. it seems like the email account is effected by the virus and its sending mail to all the contacts. better go for apple app store and find suitable app for that.
