iphone-wormHacked Iphones can be infected with the Ikee worm. The code that’s build like a worm only affects “jailbreaked” iphones.

To be affected the user also has to activated login via ssh and still use the original password. So for experienced users it’s not very difficult to protect yourself.

Ikee exchanges the background image of the phone and looks for more phones to infect but no other damage has been reported.

The creator of the worm, a 21 year old Australian says it was supposed to be a joke and the intention was never for the worm to spread.

Change your passwords, people…

Until next time 😉
