jailbroken_iphone_hacked_intro-266x400A Dutch hackers has shown the simplicity of an iPhone hack. Countless numbers of jailbroken devices were hacked by using a port scanning technique along with some networking smarts. After the guy gained access he saw that the jailbroken devices had unchanged root passwords along with SSH enabled. If you were hacked the following message popped up on your screen:

“If you don’t pay, it’s fine by me, but remember, the way I got access to your iPhone can be used by thousands of others-they can send text messages from your number (like I did), use it to call or record your calls, and actually whatever they want, even use it for their hacking activities! I can assure you, I have no intention of harming you or whatever, but, some hackers do! It’s just my advice to secure your phone.”

No harm was done, as he promises. He just wanted to teach people a lesson. When I read this I immediately disabled SSH on my jailbroken iPhone 3GS. Luckily I change my password every now and then. The following link directs you to a post where the guy shows you how to make sure your jailbroken iPhone is not at risk.
