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.
