So if you've jailbroken your iPhone, installed SSH, and still haven't changed your password from the default despite our previous warnings about Dutch Ransomers and Australian Rickrollers? Maybe you thought those were just funny (as seen in this video from iPhoneMVP)? Well now things have gotten more serious -- there's a new attack making the rounds that just plain steals your data.
Same method of attack, the bad guy scans the local network for insecure SSH on Jailbroken iPhones, and when it finds it, begins to copy your contacts, messages, email, events, photos, media, etc. This could, of course, include passwords, financial data, and those pics you never got around to deleting...
If you haven't already, go change your SSH password now. If you need help, go to the TiPb iPhone Forums and get it. Just secure your iPhone.
