First iPhone Worm in the wild - for Jailbroken iPhones only

PMP Today reports that the first iPhone targeted worm is hitting jailbroken iPhones due to a standard SSH password. The worm is a mobile device Rick Roll, resulting in a Rick Astley photo being set as the phone's background.

The easy fix is, of course, to not use a default SSH password - "alpine" wasn't exactly a good password to start with.
