First iPhone Worm Found
Posted by Mikko @ 18:21 GMT

We have located the first iPhone worm, dubbed as Ikee. It's currently spreading in the wild, but it's only able to infect devices that have been "jailbroken" by their owners. Jailbreaking removes iPhone's protection mechanisms, allowing users to run any software they want.

Affected users will find that their iPhone wallpaper has been altered to a picture of Rick Astley (of Rickroll fame) and the message "ikee is never going to give you up".

Spam - Uninteresting garbage quickly deleted.
Spammer - A parasitic worm intent on creating internet misery.
