Yes. iPhones and iPads have an orientation lock.

Flick up your control panel and press the padlock in a circle.

It's not a virus, don't worry. It's an error which affected many sites, a loophole in their encryption buried away, and could have made it easier for hackers to find personal details.

It is unclear whether any hackers ever actually used this loophole or if they, like the programmers, were clueless.

It's resolved now: if you're worried, simply change your password!
