    I don't think it is a virus, see this: superuser.com/questions/472217/… – Max Jul 16 '15 at 14:44
  • I read it thank you I don't use iCloud though. I always have it off. – user80770 Jul 16 '15 at 14:46
  • @user80770 First thing that should assure you nothing wrong is that the url is amazonaws.com thats a popular "hosting" company which companies can store their user's data on. Unless you're a developer, or someone experienced in this field, don't bother as it'll only confuse you and put you off. – Downgoat Jul 16 '15 at 16:12

Netstat app is not an application for viewing running processes, but checking your network connections, to see what you are accessing.

This means that the aforementioned compute-1.amazonaws.com is not running, but a connection one of the apps on your phone has made.

Anyways, this is not a virus, compute-1.amazonaws.com is a service commonly used to run web services from, and one of your apps is talking to this web service.

iOS is highly secure so it is unlikely that you'd be able to get a virus, there aren't any at the moment.

Are you seeing symptoms of an issue, because if not, and if you've done a restore, you can safely assume there is no virus or issue.

  • How about 1.85 logs webkit & brain service updates and thank you for that information u cleared my head. I no my router is infected an I am changing it but I don't what to connect the iPad to the new router if there is a possibility that I can get infected again. Very paranoid. – user80770 Jul 16 '15 at 14:52
  • Yeah seriously paranoid, again it's extremely unlikely a router would get a virus, I think you need to relax. Your router and other devices almost certainly don't have a virus. – unknowndomain Jul 16 '15 at 14:55
  • Na my router is infected the firmware is changed telnet is turn on services r hidden I have unknown static ips on routor. Was hack through telnet client protocol. Not paranoid with router I had a MacBook 4 days it got infected to the point that when I turn it one every time it would come up saying that I had to re download Yosemite again. So that's why I'm paranoid with iPad especially with the ssl venerability that Apple always says the fix but never do.. Which has a lot to do with 1.85 bugtype. – user80770 Jul 16 '15 at 14:59
  • Okay, anyway, I have given my answer, you don't have a virus, iOS has a sandboxed architecture, it's extremely unlikely. And I don't wish to engage with any more paranoid belief that everything that a computer does wrong is a virus. It's much more likely your MacBook has a software fault than a virus. – unknowndomain Jul 16 '15 at 15:06
  • Installed Winebottler downloaded malwarebytes over 20 viruses detected! Yeah thanks for ur help =) – user80770 Jul 16 '15 at 15:08
