    @mike, my email was a com cat account. And the real strange part was that apple kept trying to email me things reset passwords and stuff and i wasn't getting any of it. I called comcast yesterday and we found that my email was set to reject all emails???

    @bill, I don't know anything about the root password and most purchases and dl'ds are done at work on an access point were we
    Each have our own ip, at home with encryption, or on the 3G network.

    I think what may have happened is one of the guys here at work went into something I won't discuss on here and put something I shouldn't have had on the iPad which i think may have been compromised to get my information.

    What look like happened is your comcast email account was compromized.

    They looked through it for and emails and spotted one from apple.
    They went to apple and requested your password since they have access to your email apple just sent the password over, they read it and deleted the message.
    Then once they had your account login and password they set your email account to delete new incoming messages so that you wouldnt notice all the new purchase emails apple sends when you buy stuff on iTunes.


    if it was due to your iPad or not we probably wont know, but it seems that your Comcast email account what got compromised.


    You may want to think about switching over to a free Gmail account. You will get a ton of more storage space. They have an awesome spam detection system, and you can look at who has logged into your account in the past, where they were from and what their IP address was.

    comcast may have login info logged as well, you would have to request that they look it up though.

    i'm dealing with a similar issue. i woke up yesterday to my bank calling me letting me know of $1050 in itunes purchases.

    i log into my itunes account and see a bunch of charges for 'in app' purchases for virtual poker chips comming from the zynga app 'live poker 7k free' only problem is that I don't have this app installed on my ipad or any other 'idevice'

    I'd be interested to hear what was bought on the OP's itunes account.

    My Ipad is jailbroken, and I did take precaution and change the root password (seeing as cydia tells you to do that!) and I never bought anything (to my knowledge) over any unsecure wifi. i mainly use my own secure wifi (spa) or i use the att 3g.

    I really want to figure out how the attackers got my itunes account info. and what they have to gain by buying these virtual poker chips.

    i've only installed a handfull of JB apps: backgrounder, sbsettings, mywi (and that weird ROCK licensing program that get's installed with mywi) winterboard, fullforce, activator, open ssh, and a few themes i found in the cydia installer, which i've since deleted.

    Could there be a rogue app / theme or some other vunerability in cydia or ROCK that compromises security of our idevices and sends our itunes info to theives? I don't know but it sure seems like it.

    i've since changed my itunes password and removed my credit card from my itunes account, and working with apple (what a joke, they dont' have phone support for stuff like this, and they take forever to reply to email) and zynga to get refunds.

    so far zynga has actually replied to my email asking for a refund and for device info related to unauthorized charges, but they say "they can't find the transactions"

    just thought i'd add my 2 cents in here and let people know about my experience.

    Did you jailbreak your ipad?

    Did you jailbreak your IPad? If So that is probably the problem. The reason why I said that is, I was putting the IOS4 on my IPhone 3G & then since I use T-Mobile as my carrier then I had to jailbreak & unlock after I installed IOS4 & I was successful, but for some reason after I did all that crap everything seemed fine until I installed a shady App from the Cydia App Store & then my IPhone started moving slow as a turtle, so I then uninstalled the crapware that I just installed & then I restarted 2 times & then everything was ok. I love Cydia for giving me access to be able to use my IPhone 3g on T-Mobile network, but some of the shady characters & software are really scary because we do not know who these people may be,they may be thieves from China or Africa or here in the USA I don't know, but my gut feeling tells me to leave those malware infested app's alone. So for me I am not going to jailbreak my IPAD 3G 64GB because it is just not worth the trouble of identity theft. So if you installed any Apps from that so called Cydia app store,then I would uninstall everything & since you said that you restored your IPad, then I would not jailbreak it this time because it is just not worth the trouble especially when we are all doing shopping & maybe paying our bills on it & those Cydia Apps & the store filled with ton's of ad's just seem shady as heck & I am not going to install nothing else from there infested Cydia App Store because I simply do not trust it & you should not either. Good Luck!
