My iPad was constantly crashing. Like others, I believe it was under other control. No matter...
The genius at Apple store deleted everything and replaced firmware and software. Brand new!
Next day while on FB it froze. Diagnostic logs at that time show a counter reset crash and immediately after a panic crash.
If it's ok, I'll post the panic crash. What bothers me most is the number of Bluetooth, com center, identity, lockdown, im threads running. None of those we're enabled. I was connected to Internet by wifi. I had on Mail, safari, FB. No apps loaded yet.
What does this mean? Is someone trying to invade my iPad? What should I do?

Those running threads? Those are all background tasks. You did not enable them, the system does on boot. Those are necessary tasks, for example SpringBoard is you GUI, UserEvenAgent responds to taps, wifid as you can imagine handles networking. Disable bluetooth if you don't use it.

 

Have you been hacked? No. iOS is easily one of the most secure OS's around, not because of any specific security features, but because of how sandboxed the user is, unless they are jailbroken. Nobody, not even you, can edit the filesystem to say, implement remote control software, unless you intentionally installed a malicious app. Even then, Apple's strict approval procedures make it almost impossible to push a malicious app to the app store.

Appreciate your reassurance. Any idea what caused this panic crash? And why both iPads were constantly crashing?
You suggest disabling BT. Is that possible on an iPad?
CommCenterClassi - is that the apple Instant Messenger?
I'm actually more concerned about being "mirrored" - is VMClient a normal part of iOS? and what is Purplebuddy?
Finally, what does 'deadbeef' mean?

Yes, you can turn Bluetooth off either using Control Center (i.e. the quick access to some settings that you get from "swiping up" from the bottom) or in the Settings app.

Where do you see this? Also, are you running any intensive apps?

"Yes, you can turn Bluetooth off either using Control Center (i.e. the quick access to some settings that you get from "swiping up" from the bottom) or in the Settings app."
@ smax - Thank you. I am familiar with those ways of turning BT on and off. I thought "disable" meant something more.

@ Felipe - running only the iPad preinstalled apps and a solo sudoku.
VMClient is in crash log.
"purple buddy" is listed frequently in diagnostic logs. (Snippet below) Does "wwan" mean wide wireless area network?
If so, how can that be if iPad and modem/router are my entire network. Not very wide. In addition to crashes, email has some questionable behaviors. I'm trying to figure out what's happening - does remote port 49618 mean anything to you?
Thank you so much for any help.

On/off vs. disable…same basic thing. The Control Center or Setting app controls are turning of/disabiling the Bluetooth chipset in the iPhone or iPad. When you do it, the little Bluetooth symbol in the upper right corner of you iPad should disappear. If it is on, the symbol should be there but "greyed out" unless you actively have the iPad connected to some Bluetooth device.

email has some questionable behaviors.


What questionable behaviors?

The port you mentioned is Apple's default port for Xsan, a sort software that makes a Mac act sort of like a NAS.

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xsan

 

Devices like your iPad can connect to the server, the Mac, and exchange files. These devices can all read/write simultaneously.

Thank you. I had read that - somewhat over my head. I think I get the gist. The question then is, who is my iPad exchanging files with? How do I find out whose Mac/server/device has the Xsan? I have shut everything down except modem/router and iPad. Yes, something is reading/writing simultaneously. How do I find out how and stop it? Thanks (again).

It's not exchanging files, it's just a service. You can't shut it off, it's akin to a startup process on windows such as svchost.

So, if a utility shows my port to be 46786, it means nothing? I thought a port was an entrance and/or exit between me and specific types of information coming and going. Do I understand correctly, from your comment, that a port just hangs open because it is part of a native service?

So, if I've been assigned a static IP (not my ISPs doing) by Verizon (presumably FIOS ) with port #46786, no information is is being written/read through that file exchange. Please forgive if this is a completely ignorant question.

I am trying to understand why my preference settings are ignored. For example, mail push (all push) is disabled and set to manual fetch, yet it downloads as it comes in.

Your port 46786 may be open on the devices, however on your router(WAN), likely all ports are closed. You probably have no open ports facing outside, the internet.

 

Where do you see these ports are open? Also, if you did set it to manual fetch, mail should not be coming in. Are you receiving push notifications when they arrive?
