My HP touchpad appears to be uploading large amounts of data [over wifi] (between 200 and 400 Megs) twice a day, between 8am and 9am, and in the afternoon around 3pm. The touch pad sits on a touchstone all day, and is often not being actively used by someone at the time of the data uploads.
To my inexperienced eye, it looks like I have a virus of some sort, but, searching the Internet, I have not seen any one else describe the same issue. Surely I'm not the first person to have seen this behaviour?
The touchpad is used as a web browser, media player, and digital photoframe, so I am guessing its uploading the video files to somewhere. I'm in the process of setting up my Home network so that I can snoop (wireshark) the network to see whats happening, but I've not got it sorted just yet.
From reading the forums, it would seem I should just use the WebOS Doctor to "reset/reinstall" the touchpad, but I would like to know more about what is happening, where my files are going, and which of the Free apps I installed that caused the issue.
The touchpad has not had any preware installed.
Has anyone else seen this behaviour? Are there any log on the touchpad that I can look at to see what its doing? Or am I just wasting my time, and I should just reset the touchpad.
Any help, suggestions would be appreciated.
