If you have a jailbroken iPhone, with an unchanged SSH password, there is a high chance that your security can be compromised by any of the iPhone worms out there. The easiest thing one can do to secure his or her jailbroken iPhone is to change the default root password or by disabling SSH entirely. Apple’s spokesperson Natalie Harrison today offered following comments regarding all these recent iPhone worm attacks.

Just a couple of days ago, we warned you about a worm which turned into a mobile botnet, infecting thousands of jailbroken iPhone users worldwide. According to the latest report posted by Mashable, this malicious worm in question has now been identified by the name of Ikee.B or Duh virus, and it is of the same variant as the original Ikee virus which was created by an Aussie. The only difference here is that Ikee.B is far more dangerous like iPhone/Privacy.A virus, and it is spreading rapidly, infecting thousands of jailbroken iPhone users in Australia, Netherlands, Hungary, Portugal, Brazil and other countries.

From last one month or so, jailbroken iPhone community has remained under constant threats from various types of worm attacks. First time that we warned you about was when a Dutch hacker tried to access jailbroken iPhones through SSH in his native country Netherlands. He offered remedy for 5 Euros. Another attempt was by Ikee, an Australian, who was successful in injecting a worm into jailbroken iPhone’s whose users had forgot to change their root password for SSH. This worm ikee, however, did not cause any harm to the victim’s iPhone, but it laid a foundation for another worm that could harm iPhone users indefinitely.

November has proved tough for jailbroken iPhone users as they twice came under attack by hackers. First one which we did warned you about was when a Dutch hacker tried to access jailbroken iPhones through SSH in his native country Netherlands. He was successful in sending totally off guarded users a message that read, “Your iPhone’s been hacked because it’s really insecure! Please visit doiop.com/iHacked and secure your iPhone right now! Right now, I can access all your files.”. The second development was an attempt by an Australian who successfully injected a worm called “ikee” into jailbroken iPhones whose users forgot to change their root password for SSH. Victims of ikee virus were astonished to find their home screen background automatically changed to that of Rick Astley. ikee virus spread like a chain reaction from iPhones on one cellular network, to iPhones on other.

In continuation from our last post, here is yet another development which took place in the last few days when some jailbroken iPhone users found their home screen background a little different than it was last seen by them. If your jailbroken iPhone has changed its background automatically to that of Rick Astley (some 80’s singer) with the words “ikee is never going to give you up”, then you are most likely a victim of ikee virus which infects iPhone’s via SSH. The virus in question has originated from Australia by a hacker named Ikee and it is now quickly spreading to other parts of the world. If you have been affected, luckily there is no harm done as this virus was more of an experiment than anything else.
