Another worm threatens jailbroken iPhones

First was the Rick Astley worm. Then came a security threat via WiFi. Now there's an iPhone worm that tries to steal your bank details. It's only a serious threat in the Netherlands, because it pretends to be a login site for Dutch bank ING, but it's a sign that mobile security threats are increasing. As with the previous two cases, only jailbroken Apple iPhones are affected – and only if the SSH file-sharing password hasn't been changed. [Sources: BBC News; F-Secure.com]
