Another iPhone worm, Botnet style – CNET News

The worm “uses command-and-control, like a traditional PC botnet,” Sophos wrote
in a blog post on Saturday to warn users about the exploit. “It configures two
startup scripts, one to execute the worm on boot-up, and the other to create a
connection to a Lithuanian server to upload stolen data and cede control to the
bot master.

Ouch. Jailbroken iPhones & iPod Touches get a botnet-style worm that uploads user’s data, while at it. DO change that root password of jailbroken devices!
