Virus/Malware on iPad - Locks up Screen

About a week ago, I started getting a popup window in the middle of my screen that locks up the iPad until you click on the button in the popup. This only happens on one website, so far (Drudge Report). It is a box that says stuff like "You are a winner..." etc. not the type of message that says your system is compromised and wants you to pay money to fix. I have cleared my history and cookies, and it still does it.I have also searched the web for answers, but haven't been able to find any that relate to this particular issue. TIA for any help you can provide!

I'd try a browser reset.

Not uninstall/reinstall but a reset, how is on the web. If not, a rest of the tablet assuming your files are backed up.
