    I was browsing the safari on ipod touch and a pop up message saying its infected with a virus and needs to be scanned.

    Is it possible for ipod touch 2g v2.2 to be infected with malware and viruses?

    Could they implement key loggers and stuff to steal my passwords?

    thanks

    No, if your ipod touch is acting funny, just restore.

    You probably went to a site that was filled with adware/spyware/viruses for PCs.

    Just install an antivirus app and you're set to browse porn sites safely again.

    he says he was browsing safari, so it was just one of those "Warning click here to get rid of virus" crap popups

    Many pop-ups analyze the header while your surf the internet. The header contains all the dirty details about your platform, browser, connection, ISP etc. It just placed iPhone/iPod in the blank and gave you the regular Windows pop-up.

    No worries, you're iPod is safe. Although, being the fact it's based off Mac OS X and it has viruses now, there's a very thin possibility that things can get nasty in years to come.
