New iPhone Worm Goes Live, Steals Your Info For Reals
A new iPhone worm has found its way onto jailbroken iPhones with SSH enabled. The worm, which emerged from the Netherlands according to security software company F-Secure, puts up an ING Direct login page that lets the hacker gather login credentials and, presumably, move funds to wherever they please. This version also changes the ‘alpine’ password to block users from getting to the phone via SSH.
While presently isolated within the Netherlands, this outbreak may spread further still, as it is capable of infecting other jailbroken iPhones on the same WiFi network.
Stay tuned for additional details as they become available and if you’ve seen this on your end, please let us know.
