New Malware Allows Hackers to Access Personal Information on Jailbroken iPhones – Mac Rumors

So the iPhone’s security situation worsens. This time it’s a really bad one. You can have your data stolen from your iPhone without even realising it.

You could walk past a coffee shop and someone with the right software could scan your phone and get at all your data. You wouldn’t even know it. Wow.

Of course this doesn’t affect me. Or just about anybody else who owns an iPhone.

Just those morons who took the advice from certain Mac-gurus and jailbroke their iPhones to ‘free them from the tyranny of Apple’s closed system’.

I think it’s time to admit that maybe Apple ‘knows best’.
