Thread: Phishing for root password on Rock?

  1. #1
    Default Phishing for root password on Rock?
    I just logged into the Rock screen when a pop-up said that my root password was still set to "alpine" asking for me to change it. I typed in a lewed epithet, and the pop-up went away.
    Ssh was off.

    Was this an example of phishing or malware on my Ipad???

    I had recently installed the snes HD emulator

    I think the Rock folks are just trying to be helpful. It's really not a good idea to leave the password set to the default, because when you do activate OpenSSH, anybody on the network who knows what they're doing has root access to your phone.

    Default Rock helpfull?
    If Rock has access to my root, then there is biggggggggggg problem!!! Besides, I HAD changed the root password, yet the popup was obviously Fishing for me to put in the new password. I doubt very seriously this was a ROCK pop-up, and if it was it was grossly inept at trying to help.

    Rock wants people to be sure to change the root password.

    It is not malware so your good. Also do you know how Cydia and Rock install and modify stuff?
