iPhone 3.0.1 update
Today Apple released iPhone 3.0.1 firmware update to iPhone users. This iPhone 3.0.1 update patches a critical iPhone SMS flaw that could do some serious damage to iPhone users. If you are an iPhone user or you know anyone who has an iPhone, don't forget to update! This is a very important update. An iPod Touch 3.0.1 update is not out because iPod Touch's were not vulnerable to the SMS exploit.

iPhone SMS virus Patch (sort of)!

Earlier today I made a post about the iPhone SMS virus. Now QuickPWN has posted a guide on how to disable the SMS app and prevent this virus. This is not an iPhone virus SMS patch, but it is a good way to keep yourself safe until Apple releases an update to the iPhone firmware.

iPod Touch virus?


Posted by iPod Touch | Posted in , | Posted on Thursday, July 30, 2009

Today, Charlie Miller will release details of an iPhone virus he and his partner Collin Mulliner discovered. Thankfully this is no iPod Touch virus, so iPod Touch uses are safe. If you're an iPhone user you may want to continue reading this post.

Charlie Miller and his partner discovered the iPhone virus 6 weeks ago. It works through SMS, so technically it's an iPhone SMS Virus. It spreads through SMS messages and doesn't require any files to be downloaded. The attacker only needs to know the victim's phone number, and they can just send an SMS message that contains the virus. Once the SMS is sent the attacker can take over the iPhone instantly! The attacker can steal important data, or even spread the virus to other contacts. This is why iPhone users need to be very careful. This exploit will be released today, and a lot of iPhone users need to be aware of it.

Apple will most likely release a patch in the iPhone 3.1 update. The only thing we can do for now is turn off our iPhones to avoid this exploit.

iTunes Trojan horse Small.BOG virus


Posted by iPod Touch | Posted in , , , , | Posted on Saturday, July 25, 2009

I just downloaded iTunes 8.2.1 on my Windows 7 PC. I scanned my PC with AVG and AVG detected a Trojan horse Small.BOG virus. Of course, Apple is smart enough not to distribute files with viruses on their servers, and AVG has given me false alerts in the past. Has anyone else here experienced this error? Post it here in the comments. Please post the operating system you're using as well.

Don't be scared to use iTunes 8.2.1. I've double-checked with another anti-virus program and it appears to be safe. If it had a virus Apple wouldn't be distributing it on their site. To be safe, make sure you only download iTunes from and no other site.


Update your definition file for AVG (they recently released one)

Thanks yellowsn0w for the tip!

iPod Touch 3.1 beta 2


Posted by iPod Touch | Posted in , | Posted on Tuesday, July 14, 2009

Apple has just released the iPod Touch 3.1, and iPhone 3.1 beta 2 software update to iPhone developers. The build number is 7c106c. If you have a developer account you can download it from the Apple Developer Center.

If you have an unlocked iPhone 3G/3GS you should stay far away from this update. It will permanently block the exploit that ultrasn0w and purplesn0w software uses.

If you do download this update leave a comment and let us know of any changes you find in there!

purplesn0w: iPhone 3GS unlock


Posted by iPod Touch | Posted in | Posted on Tuesday, July 14, 2009

Are you an iPhone 3GS user? Are you using ultrasn0w? Good news. Geohot, the world's first person to ever unlock the iPhone, has released a new unlocking software called purplesn0w.

purplesn0w is still in beta right now, but Geohot claims that it's the best unlock out there. Although the Dev Team already released the ultrasn0w unlock that works with iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G, Geohot decided to make his own unlock and release the source code as well. Unfortunately it only works for iPhone 3GS users, so if you're not an iPhone 3GS user then you must stick with ultrasn0w.

So why would an iPhone 3G user need to use purplesn0w instead of ultrasn0w? Many people were reporting wifi, and battery issues with ultrasn0w and Geohot claims to have fixed this issues with his release.

Downloading and installing purplesn0w on the iPhone 3GS is pretty simple. Here is how to do it:

*Note: This will not work on hactivated iPhone 3GS's yet, Geohot plans on adding support for hactivated iPhones tomorrow. T-mobile users must disable 3G.
  1. Launch the Cydia App
  2. Go to Manage -> Sources
  3. Tap Edit on the top right
  4. Tap Add at the top left
  5. Enter as the Cydia/APT URL
  6. Tap the Add Source button
  7. Once the source has been added, find and install the package
  8. Install the package
  9. Reboot your iPhone 3GS
Just a couple questions for any iPhone 3GS user who tries this. Were you successfully able to unlock your iPhone 3GSwith purplesn0w? If you used ultrasn0w previously, did you notice any difference?
