Reports on several iPhone worms came up the last few days and I thought some of you might have an (possibly jailbroken) iPhone, if so be aware:
Jailbroken iphones with an SSH client installed can be affected by these worms.
This can be avoided by changing the iPhone's root password from alpine (the default set by Apple) to one you can make up yourself.
Let me know if a tutorial is needed on changing the password.(no big thing)
Remember, this is just important for jailbroken iPhones.
