    This problem has been around for ages. When I first had ssh on my iPhone, one of the first things I did was change the password!! I first noticed it around my college, When I would scan the local range, I always found a couple of ssh'able iphones with default passwords. A quick port scan of 62078 and 22 of my provider's(O2 Ireland) IP range's shows ALOT of insecure iPhones. It's crazy that my provider doesn't secure access to these ports but it is also some benefit's to those of us that like to take advantage of.

    I did the more noble thing and wrote a service on a server of mine there that scans for these insecure iphones drops a webclip onto there dashboard with a link to how to change the ssh password.

    I doubt any 1 has actualy fallen for this crap cause if you jailbroken your phone than i doubt your a dum ***..
    The most extreme measure you should be going to is simply plugging your ipod into your computer and restoring to factory settings. Not too hard, but I guess some people can't think of that

    ^I think you're the "dum***" because "dumb" has a 'b' in it!! That's a word you learned when you were four.


    Unrelated: my root password was never alpine. It was a defaulted password though. Should I still change it anyway?

    Default Damn *** hacker
    My question, who has been hack, please tell me, anyone???

    If you set your phone auto lock in 1 minute, after phone lock , who can get in into ssh?

    I dont understand how ssh is working, because when I open ssh, I set my iphone to never lock.

    then password "alpine" (without quote)
    now you are logging as root
    type "passwd" (without quote)
    type your new password
    retype your new password

    That's it

    after the instruction try to log in then enter password "alpine"
    the system will deny it.
    hope it help.

    What about turning off ssh by using the SB settings toggle? Wouldn't this solve The problem?

    I turn mine off all the time. If it does get stuck in a loop ssh gets turned on each time it is restarted. I turn mine off each time I reboot it with sbsettings.

    So if you get stuck in a loop you are still fine because ssh comes back on automatically each reboot.

    HAHA- i have edge disabled because I'm not on an iphone plan so I don't have to pay for internet...lets see him hack me now!!!!
    P.S.: changing passwords is great but ive heard some bad stuff....if u use 3G/Edge I'd just hit the toggle to turn off ssh except for when I'm using it
