I bought my Ipad from Best Buy.. Not Jailbroken 100%...
I have asked all the techs that work for me to investigate the situation as well.. Nobody seems to have come up with anything..
I looked at another post of a guy who said his was hacked, somebody used his amazon. wep vs wpa2 etc..
I run a 55mb internet connection with WPA2 protection...
Have you made these adjustments:
> Change the default wirless network name from default (ex. Linksys476) to "BillyBobsFleaCircus"
> Change the password from easily guessed (JaneandBill123) to something like "x$8_3arY&"
People know hacks into certain makers of routers (my first suggestion).
People guess network names from names on mailboxes, so use randon and unguessable network names (my first suggestion)
People think their simple passwords cannot be guessed from names of their dogs or children (my second suggestion)
Thanks Steve... Yes now that I think about it.. When Cox came and installed my new router, the guy left the login as "admin" - with the default "password".. not sure if that has any meaning... Also when he created my PassPhrase he just said.."Easy to use just your 10 digit phone number"... hmmmmmmmm
So I have went ahead and changed everything... even not broadcasting my Network name.. So you would have to chose "other" when connecting to my network and know the exact name... PassPhrase I also changed...
Thanks for help
Amazing how many network installers do *not* tell people the safe methods.
Change your admin password to something as complex (although you sound like you did already).
You should change those passwords once a month, and write them in a log you store in a known place like a closet shelf in your room.
Some routers allow "guest passes" that you can tuen on or off at will so your primary password is not told to the world and still your kids' friends can access it. Call Cox for details about that.
I have had the exactly the same experience as you mentioned with my iPad 1st Gen. I too have had the password changed on Router/Mac, and use strong encyption. I also took to the apple shop but they couldn't help as the issue didn't happen whilst at the shop?. I am asking my broadband supplier in the UK (SKY) to look at the issue too.
Did you ever discover what the issue was?. i have virus checked using Sophos and also Little Snitch and no issues have been found.
There is no known way of remotely controlling the screen on an iPad that has not been jailbroken. Dirty or defective screens have been known to make this happen, which can look very deliberate sometimes.
Regarding the router, note that the encryption you're using on your network doesn't mean anything if you've got your router set to allow remote administration. This would allow anyone who brute-force cracks your password over the internet to change your router settings. Make sure to turn off remote administration in your router.
I haven't jailbroken my iPad and it has been factory reset and checked by Apple Store in the UK.
I have changed default passwords for SKY's router and my MBP and iPad, but still the problem occurs i have video'ed the actuall "remote" connection showing how the ipad's keyboard pops up and starts typing as experienced the same by Alexandr previously.
I have checked and remote management of the router is not enabled.
Do you know if any Mac Software that can navigate around on the iPad (e.g. similar to PC Anywhere or remote Desktop) when connected via the USB cable ?
There may be some iOS app that would allow you to remotely access the screen of that app, while that app was open. It's possible, but may or may not actually exist. However, iOS apps are not allowed much runtime in the background, and cannot install any kind of hooks to allow this sort of thing. So there's no way for someone to remotely control the screen like this in general.
