First iPhone “Virus”

Interesting. Only affects jailbroken iPhones. I’m curious to see *how* it does this, but I’m taking an educated guess that the virus scans for iPhone’s with SSHD running, and then attempts to logon with the default username / password (which is root/alpine by the way), and then has it’s way with the victim’s iPhone. Clever, yet so simple…

Suffice to say, my root password on my iPhone is now changed!

Oh and I love the Rick Roll effect. Personally, I would have set the ring tone to Rick Astley as well 😛
