Fairsy asks: Can iPhones get infected by viruses?

Last night while playing Township on his iPhone, Fairsy was presented with an alert warning him his phone had been infected by a virus, and advising him to download virus protection software.

Concerned the warning was a scam itself, Fairsy did some investigating (he googled it) and found viruses on iPhones are extremely rare.

Wondering whether these warnings were common, and whether there was a possibility his phone had been infected, Fairsy puts the question to Big Breakfast listeners.

Have you received a virus warning on your phone? Did it end up doing any damage?
