the whole i(insert stupid appliance name applicable here) ecosystem is one massive fascist regime, jobs talks about only allowing good quality applications but without an open environment your hindering creativity, also without bad applications how do people develop better ones and in ways some bad applications put together in a certain way can always make a better application, its a matter of good design and evolution of a product which just cant happen if the first programs dont get allowed.

There must be a lot of people who don't get the functionality they want out of their iPhone for hackers to bother making a virus like this.

apple products never get viruses because they lock down and overprotect their products like the man living in the bomb shelter his whole life, and jail-breaking takes the protection away.

That's why people SHOULDN'T:
*open every piece of spam they get
*use a filter, or just use gmail
*think before executing sh!t on a windows box
*use linux when dealing with e-mail, use windows only when ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY.

Voted down for rambling about Apple and Steve Jobs completely and 100% off topic. Enough already.

Apparently I'm the only one who read the article before heading to the comments section to bash Apple.

It is Windows malware... the iPhone isn't getting a virus and I doubt a Windows batch file will affect a Mac.

I doubt this site is owned by Apple. But the people running this site has too many iPad, iPhones, and i(whatever).

i was perfectly on topic, people wouldn't need to be jail breaking their phone to use it openly as they like if it was not locked down in the first place

Serves those PC owners right for straying from the almighty Apple. If they stuck with Apple, they couldn't get infected with a Windows Virus (unless, of course, they run Windows in Bootcamp because, you know, they actually want to do something with their computer).

Anyway, NEVER trust hacking websites, EVER! Seriously, these people have no problem circumventing the law for their own purposes, so why wouldn't they install a virus on your machine? Think about it people!

Pretty lame malware if the payload is a simple batchfile, probably created by a script kiddie. If you're gonna make malware at least inject it into the exe file!

Close, the reason why iphones/macs dont get viruses is the same reason linux doesn't get viruses: theyre based off of unix, which is inherently secure since normal users only have access to modify their home directory and not the entire filesystem.
