Anti-virus, Malware...iPad and iPhone

After reading this, I’m wondering how to protect one’s device, or would this just be a threat for Androids?

Is iOS susceptible to viruses and malware?

So then, what are some of the good apps that will catch them? Since Apps are only purchased through the App Store, how might these worms, etc. get into the apps?

Because Apple controls the App store thie problem is not so much in the Apps.....

PEBCAC!!! As usual, the biggest problem sits in the chair!! Clicks questionable links, opens email that should be questionable, provides personal data to phishing emails, etc., etc., etc. Usually a user "invites" the problem by ignoring safe computing guidelines.......
