if some jerk was dumb enough to hack my iphone, the last thing i would do is pay them money. a huge problem is people decide that jailbreaking is a good idea use a simple internet guide. this is nice except they don't understand how their iphone works. this means somebody can go and scare some people into forking over a ton of money (collectively).
The dudes paypal account is already suspended and he posted an apology along with instructions on how to secure the iPhone. I'm honestly surprised it's taken this long as this particular vulnerability has been documented. What I'm worried about is when someone figures out why the iGrenade blows up and if they can trigger that behavior remotely.

[citation][nom]cruiseoveride[/nom]Thats so lame. Not even a real hack. He just logged in using default passwords. This is like messing with someone's linksys router and then calling it "hacking".[/citation]

You guys need to read the whole article. Apple's software wasn't hacked. It's only affecting iPhones that have been jailbroken. Not only that, it only affect jailbroken phones where the idiot users forgot to set the password from the default one provided...Some hack...just dumb users.
