Can IPod touches get viruses?

Hello all,

Can iPod touches get viruses? My friend's just crashed and isn't showing any signs of recovery, so I was wondering: could it have been a virus? I know he downloads .ipa files off the Internet, so could there have been a virus in one of them? And are there any viruses going around, period?

Thanks in advance.

Yes, theoretically any operating system can get a virus.

No there are no virus going around for iPods, your friends iPod does not have a virus. Post what model they have and perhaps we can help revive it.

It was a 4th gen. But alas, it's too late to try to revive it - he's already returned it.

And thanks for the reply, good to know that I'm safe. (for now).
