Tell me this does not sound suspicious to you at all. Quote: “The worm affects only a very specific set of iPhone users who have jail broken their iPhones and hacked it with unauthorized software”. Yeah, you read that right. Apple clearly is not worried about this at all.
Honestly I might go so far as to say that Apple is quite happy about all of this. Think of it this way – who wants to jail break their phone and risk this worm going around! Now I will not go on record as saying that Apple is behind it, but man this does seem awful convenient for them.
Other people however, have gone on to point out that this worm only affects people with jail broken phones that are using the default password. So allegedly, a non-default password will make you safe. Personally, I will opt to not assume this is accurate and I have not jail broken my iPhone nor do I plan to.
