Do not ever use a WEP only secured Wi-Fi router. These things can be hacked within seconds!
Set your Wi-Fi router security to at least WPA2 with a gigantic password.

I thought the same thing when I read your rant. Good luck with your creative writing class.

i am not a troller at all, i live in Massachusetts. pls believe me when i say all i am looking for is advice on what to do, i just dont know what to do with my ipad now and was looking for any help... i know the story seems ficticious,
but if it didnt personally happen to me, i wouldnt belive it wither, ive used macs for 20 years, and this is not my way of entertaining myself, ive counted on the apple online community in the past for help, and so far, some of the replies have been really helpful, not trying to troll at all, i am just looking for how to resolve this, so i can have peace of mind about my ipad... and whether i should wipe it, or just feel comfort knowing it could have just been a wifi break in from our vacation house.

thanks apfelwurm, you are a good guy... if anyone has any other ideas of what happened could you pls post them?? im just trying to figure out what went wrong...
* question... Could my iMac (that i use itunes on at work to sync my ipad) be compromised with a keylogger??? and then have it spread to the ipad when i was syncing it?? is there any way to look for a keylogger on my iMac??
i am not a troll as somebody said... i dont even know what that is or why it would benefit me??
all im trying to do is figure out what happened to my ipad, im really sorry that you think im a troll, but that is the farthest thing away from the truth, i hope you can understand that. i am a good guy, always have been, always will, what benefit would i get out of this if i was a troll?? seriously.

What makes you think that something happened to your iPad?
I already told you twice that you were using a totally insecure WEP Wi-Fi router.
Because of this, somebody was able to see what you were sending/receiving to/from your insecure Wi-Fi router.
It's as simple as that.

In addition, I NEVER just let my iPad sleep when I'm sleeping. Of course I use a much more secure internet connection, but still, if I'm not using my iPad, I turn it off. Completely off. The OP might want to consider doing the same when not using his iPad.

As he said "9 pages of history automatically opened up to sites i had never been to"
How would you do that on iPad with hacked router?
Its clearly some free app from itunes store (cause his iPad is not Jailbroken) with embeded remote access troyan.
It is totally possible.
