  1. I received one of these emails yesterday and I did open the attachement on my ipad. Will the virus affect the ipad as it would a computer and if so could you advise the best course of action.

    Thank you,

    • Ipads are not supceptible to Windows virus. Even if you open an attached file. You are 99.99% safer opening email attachments on an ipad than on a Windows pc.
