so do we need to change our passwords? or can we just turn off ssh? seems like anyone with sbsettings (everyone) has an easy solution for this. turn it the hell off when you're not using it... am i right?

The passwd utility installed with Installer on 1.X firmware was broken. Saurik released Cydia and included a working version and it's not been an issue for well over a year, it died out in the 2.X firmwares as Cydia became the defacto standard.

Ironic... I just changed my password last night. After 2 years of putting it off, its obvious that this should be a priority, after you jailbreak before you download winterboard or a theme CHANGE YOUR SSH PASSWORD!!
It is really easy to change the password, im sure there are guides on here but if not, google it, or bing it, or yahoo! It
just get it done, doesnt take but a couple minutes.
This kind of stuff is why apple will always have an excellent argument for making jailbreaking illegal. Way to go dutch guy, tryin to ruin it for the rest of us.

I know what he did looks bad, but at least he didn't steal anyones information or ruin someones iPhones you know. Isn't there something you can delete that makes it so your phone won't talk to your computer...thus rendering it useless for a restore?

couldn't he have deleted that
(btw i don't think he should have charged, but i think he refunded so yeah no harm no foul)

btw, running open ssh on your iPhone with the default password on the AT&T network is perfectly safe. your iphones IP is natted and port 22 is not forwarded. you run a risk of it being accessed when it is on a wifi network though....

passwd has been working for me for years on my iphones, its the first thing i do once SSH is installed.

MOTHERF***ER!! i dont want my fone hacked!!
11-04-2009, 01:18 PM #34What a nonsense
Hehe, what a stupid topic :-)
1) SSH doesn't exist on normal iPhone unless YOU INSTALLED IT
2) If u installed it via iSSH or other program, then you are smart enaf to install SBsettings and disable it after use ( when u don't need it )
3) SSH will auto start on every iPhone reboot / power ON
4) Most of Jailbroken iPhone have owner who's aware of danger wich come with default alpine root password
5) U realy DO NOT NEED SSH ... try wonderfull iPANDA iphone toolkit ( u will have all option u ever need without runing SSH or iTunes )
Google ipanda or net dragon iphone ... after you install small client "panda daemon" you will have complete access to iphone file system with few click of your mouse !!!

Wow thats crazy. One of the main reasons i always change the default password. I always have it off until i plan on using it on which is only on WiFi.
But why would you turn OpenSSH on running on Edge or 3G.
11-04-2009, 01:50 PM #36
bahh. quick money. yeah, good thing my ssh is always off.
11-04-2009, 01:52 PM #37
kill the MF, I have my SSH off just in case.

i reset root and mobile passwords on both my 3gs and 3g without problem. i thought about changing the ssh port on the phones aswell. but then just decided to uninstall openSSH completely on both. if i need to ssh in i will just reinstall the package and use it.
11-04-2009, 02:23 PM #39
No. Do not turn it off. Just change your password. If you turn it off and your phone ends up in an endless reboot loop then you can't SSH into and fix it. You would have to restore.

I've changed the passwords using passwd since 2.0 jailbreak and never had a problem. I login as root and type passwd to change the root then type passwd mobile to change the mobile account. Never had a reboot loop
