I've jailbroken my iPad. First time I checked with it stated mine was manipulated, then I checked again it stated that mine is clean. Getting confused & curious, I checked again several times. Most of those stated mine is clean, but once manipulated again then clean while I rechecked around 1 minute later.

I've 2 laptops at home, 1 is fine & 1 is affected while the site stated that both of those are clean. The affected laptop gets limited access through wi fi. Connection is pretty normal using LAN but is still firewalled. I've scanned the affected use HitmanPro btw.

Please help, is there anything I can do or I just reset my ipad? Thanks a lot..

What is your question exactly? Whether you got infected by a DNS changing virus or why you can't access – patrix Oct 14 '12 at 15:03

The easiest way for you to confirm whether or not you are infected if you're getting inconsistent results from tools is to manually check your DNS settings against the rogue servers. These are the servers that were used in the attack: through through through through through through

To check your DNS settings on osx, follow these instructions to open your network settings, choose a connection, and then check the DNS tab.

To check your DNS settings on your iPad, follow these instructions to open Settings>General>Network>Wi-Fi and then check the DNS settings of your wifi network.
