    Even if this kid was 11 he should have enough sense not to put up a source that he doesn't know what it does. And heck I'm only 14 and I was like the first person(behind the original 3) to make my own source.

    Dugg this post. This is a sad development for the iPhone. I hope this is a one time event. But probably not, popular (big number) products are targetted.

    No paradise lost... It pays to read the sites in advance for information on an available application BEFORE downloaded... Caveat Emptor (especially when it's free ) Generally, I won't download until I see enough feedback on an application. Mostly to avoid introducing bugs to phone, but examples like would avoid malicious bugs to phone...

    Hi guy's I just wanted to let you guy's know that this story made it to macworld.com
    (http://www.macworld.com/article/1314...onetrojan.html) but the sad thing is that they are using false information to make it sound like 3rd party apps are the reason the iphone is getting hacked and this is why apple doesn't support it... but either way i think it's pretty sad that macworld.com would post something that's not accurate and not even ask cash or poetic for exact facts...

    Exclamation Doesn't seem right...
    Has Deathhobbit submitted it to Apple so they can take a look? How come no-one has done an analysis of the code?

    For those who have been "owned" - why don't you send a copy of the malicious file out to the Internet Storm Center or something???

    we all ready know what the file does and as there is no antivirus as of yet.

    If in doubt about an application you can always ask her or #modmyi on mirc.

    As i FOUND IT and passed it to francis and ste they discovered the truth behind it, my suspicion was 1.1.3 is not available and if there was a prep it would be pasted all over the forums so ASK if in doubt.
    Most new applications are advertised or mentioned in the news section so you can always check.

    This boy has done 3rd party apps no good. This is the reason why Apple say they do not allow 3rd party apps in the iPhone. Its a sad time for us all... hopefully nobody would be more foolish enough to do such a thing in the future.

    So what if you already know what the file does? It'd be nice to confirm it. So far, no-one has been able to confirm the existance of this code with any proof. And thats probably why there is no antivirus coverage for this file, because it doesn't exist. So if francis and stu and deathhobbit (which are the only people who appear to have even seen this so-called malicious file) are going to be responsible they should send their copies of the code to Apple.

    Default Blaze source
    I installed that Blaze whatever source and it seems to be filled with a lot of "stuff", anyone notice anything else wrong with it?
