    Yesterday I got the ikee virus on my ipad.
    I found this guide:
    http://www.redmondpie.com/how-to-secure-your-jailbroken-iphone-from-ssh-hack-9140084/

    Change my mobile- and root password and removed the lockbackround.jpg.
    Today I wanted to SSH into my IPAD to send some videos and but I couldn't login.
    I respringed my Ipad and noticed that the virus was back, although that I've changed the password.
    I've confirmed in mobileterminal that I've changed password since alpine doesn't work anymore.

    Now I've changed my password again but I can't SSH into my ipad.

    1.Is the virus blocking me from logging in?
    2.How did it return?
    3. How do I remove it completely?

    yeah, removing the lockbackround.jpg doesn't remove the script, you need to restore/re jailbreak

    I managed to remove it without restore/rejailbreak.

    Yes, but this time I "removed" all the files. The first time the guide was saying to remove only the background.

    I've respringed several times without it coming back. It used to comeback after every respring.

    So, I better did not take the advice to rejailbreak. Saved me a little bit if hassle. :rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Restore, OP said he removed it but watch how it comes back as soon as update comes around.

    Anyone care to offer some insight into this virus, like how it's commonly obtained? I'd like to avoid something like this myself as I'm sure all of us would...
