    I always feel sorry for the guy in the iPhone commercials. He always gets a call right in the middle of trying to do something

    Default Changing the root password won't help
    Although changing the root password is a good idea, it wouldn't help in this situation. If buffer overflow runs into a root terminal, it doesn't ask for a password or anything. Remember this works on even non-jailbroken devices, because this hole goes into the root terminal even if you can't, without needing a password.

    That said, if you want to change your root password, use the 'passwd' command. Get into a root terminal one of these ways:
    SSH into your device with your computer. On a Mac, open Terminal (/Applications/Utilities/Terminal.app) and type 'ssh root@[your phone's ip address]', on Windows, use puTTY
    Download MobileTerminal and type 'su root' before executing passwd. Or, if you have sudo installed, you can also use 'sudo passwd' or 'sudo -s' in the place of 'su root'
    Download TouchTerm from the App Store, make a connection to localhost (or 127.0.0.1) as root
    1 and 3 require installation of OpenSSH.
    I don't think I need to mention that the default password is 'alpine'. If you want to change the password for mobile too, use 'passwd mobile'.

    Thanks oops. No where in there did they talk about root file system access. From what I get is they are injecting a layer into the software and without having root how are they gonna do this? Mobile user maybe? Is this really possible without physical access to the device? You really gotta piss somebody off to get them to take this much effort just to keep you from using ur phone. I am going to check the date on the plist and back it up now just incase.

    They said that iPhones working with AT&T cant be infected. All of this is an iPhone progaganda, read the post about jailbreak is for drug dealers.
