Earlier this month there were news reports about a worm that was capable of infecting jailbroken iPhones, but the affect it had on an iPhone was relatively benign. However, a report yesterday on CNet said that a new worm is out and about in a number or countries and that it's capable of stealing data from your iPhone and putting your phone under the control of a bot. As you may know, a jailbroken iPhone is one that has been reconfigured so that it can work with services other than AT&T. So if you haven't messed with your iPhone in this regard, you don't have anything to worry about. The comments following the CNet report tell users of jailbroken iPhones how they can evade this worm by changing the SSH password.
