    So... Say I got redirected by accident to a website that may have a black hole exploit kit on my itouch 2g jailbroken. 1)is there a risk I got it? (i clicked off asap) 2)how can I get rid of it if I got it?

    I highly doubt your iPod is infected with the "Black Hole Exploit Kit".

    Mainly because ipods have can't download things [without certain mods].

    If you're jailbroken do this :
    -Open Cydia
    -Let the packages update (and reload data)
    -Search for 'iCleaner'
    -Get 'iCleaner' from BigBoss's SVN/Repository
    -Respring
    -Run iCleaner and let it "clean".
    Repring when done. (it will delete almost all internet cache and a few other things)
    I suggest leaving everything on default.
    Don't toy with iCleaner or you might delete system files.

    -Take care~


    Reason for edit : I typed "have can't download" ._. grammar fail...

    The description doesn't say that iCleaner removes viruses... And what else might it remove?

    iCleaner is a junk file remover for iOS (I guess you can say it's kinda like how CCleaner clears out junk on computers). I'm guessing jonthedit suggested it in case a piece of malware decided to make its home in the caches or something.

    It's very unlikely that your iPod is infected (the only malware I know of is a worm that requires the target to be jailbroken and have SSH access), but that's not to say it isn't possible, as Apple stopped pushing iPod touch 2G updates.
