Submission + - Another jailbroken iPhone worm, steals data now (boygeniusreport.com)

tlhIngan writes: "Hot on the heels of the rickrolling worm comes report of a new jailbroken iPhone worm. This time, it's not so innoculous, and it will retrieve and forward your email, SMS, calendar, and other data you may have stored on your iPhone (including data from apps you may have installed). Again, its infection vector is identical — iPhones that have been jailbroken, have SSH servers installed, and have the default password set (i.e., "alpine" for both root and mobile users)."
