Jailbroken iPhone hackers

Posted on 01 September 2014

 

iPhone users who have jailbroken their iPhones are starting to find out all the protection was for something after all! There have been several viruses seen in the wild. From rick rolling your wallpaper to charging you money to fix your iPhone!

Everyone loves a good Rick Roll (not)!

Note this worm can only infect your phone if you have left the default ‘alpine’ password, so is fairly low security risk. Created by Australian hacker ‘ikee’.

All your iPhones are belong to us

Created by a Dutch hacker this hack will display a message on your iPhone and direct you to doiop.com/iHacked where you were prompted for to make a 5 euro payment via Paypal. Apparently he later added the fix to the site for free after his Paypal was shutdown. A recent check of the site reveals http://doiop.com/ (a url shortener) have removed the shortcut for “SPAM, PHISHING, AND/OR ABUSE”.  You can now access the fix for free at http://mr09.fileave.com/

Both these hacks exploit the default password, so if you have jailbroken your iPhone we strongly suggest you change the SSH password if you haven’t already. Of course if you haven’t modified your iPhone you have nothing to worry about in either case.

The fix in anycase is here and http://mr09.fileave.com/

Running Mac OSX on a Netbook the lowdown

Posted on 29 August 2014

 

Apple has yet to enter the Netbook space, no doubt they have something in the works but users not content to wait have taken things into their own hands. Depending on what Netbook you have you may have to sacrifice some functionality but overall some like the HP Mini 1000 or a Dell Mini 9/Vostro A90 are quite comprehensive in their support of OSX.

Installing on non Mac hardware likely infringes Apple’s end user license agreement so don’t expect any official support. Check out this compatibility chart to see what your Netbook can do.

If you run into any problems you can get support over at the Hackintosh forums.

Bad news for blokes

Posted on 27 August 2014

Sorry guys, looks like the iPhone app Hottest Girls has been pulled out from the Apple Store. Seems like the application was getting too raunchy for Apple when it started posting nude and topless photos of models.

What’s your opinion boys and girls?

doiop.com/iHacked fix

Posted on 26 August 2014

 

Posted originally by a Dutch Hacker who released this virus into the wild but later had a change of heart after his paypal was shutdown and the hack was widely discussed. The url shortener service which was directing to the fix (doiop.com/iHacked) was shutdown so please spread this fix to anyone affected. Originally posted at http://mr09.fileave.com/

“1. Get an SSH program like putty for windows.
2. SSH to your iPhone. (If you haven’t done that before it may take a while, and after that there might come a warning about a key fingerprint. You can just accept that). Login using username "root" and password "alpine". (this is the default password)
3. There’s a few commands you have to execute, best is to just copy them:
rm /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.syslog.plist
chown mobile /private/var/mobile/Library/LockBackground.jpg
chmod 666 /private/var/mobile/Library/LockBackground.jpg
mv /private/var/mobile/Documents/LockBackground.backup.jpg /private/var/mobile/Library/LockBackground.jpg
4. That’s everything to remove my stuff. Now there’s one command left to make sure this won’t happen again! Again in putty or any ssh client type: "passwd". You’ll then be asked for a new password, you can change this into anything you want. The safer the better of course (:

The reason you have to change this password is that it’s default is alpine at ALL iPhones. So if anyone knows that (and all hackers do) they can access your iPhone. Now you’ve changed it this isn’t possible anymore!

If you have any questions or something, mail me and I’ll try to answer them!
