doiop.com/iHacked fix

Posted on 23 March 2017

 

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!

Bad news for blokes

Posted on 22 March 2017

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?

15-inch MacBook Pro, Mid 2009 Battery

Posted on 16 March 2017

Always a popular choice the next version of the MacBook Pro is ready to charge.

The battery follows suit from the 17inch MacBook Pro by including a non-removable battery. Not been able to swap out the battery will no doubt irk some road warriors but Apple is betting the saved space and the adaptive charging implemented will be enough to keep the peace. They are confident the battery will last 5 years before starting to lose capacity.

How long will it last you is the big question using the standard Nvidia 9400M you are looking at around 7 hours with about an hour less for the Nvidia 9600M GT.

To extend your short term battery life remember to dim your screen if possible and turn off Airport.

To extend the long term battery life make sure your battery is used regularly (having your MacBook always plugged in is not good for it’s battery).

Is the fact that you can’t swap out the battery going to sway anyone towards another model?
