    The first worm to infect the Apple iPhone has been discovered in Australia - it only affects "jail-broken" phones

    coming soon to your phone !!!

    The self-propagating program changes the phone's wallpaper to a picture of 80s singer Rick Astley with the message "ikee is never going to give you up".

    The worm, known as ikee, only affects "jail-broken" phones, where a user has removed Apple's protection mechanisms to allow the phone to run any software.

    Experts say the worm is not harmful but more malicious variants could follow.

    [FONT="Century Gothic"][SIZE="2"][COLOR="DarkGreen"]its the same as the one the other day, so in big letter before the usual nutters panic:

    [SIZE="7"]It only exploits jail-broken phones that have SSH installed, a program that allows people to make changes to the phone's file system (and SSH is turned on 24/7)[/SIZE]
    and if you are that stupid, you deserve it.

    again: if you dont have SSH installed and turned on, you are safe.
