SSH Info

For those that may fear the two known "worms" that has emerged for iPhones.
First, the phone needs to be jailbroken to be effected.
Second, you must have installed and activated SSH for the phone to be effected.

Two different way to avoid the problem is 1.) don't install SSH. You can actually use iPhone Browser to accomplish what you can with SSH. 2.) change the default SSH password.

To change the password, you download "Mobile Terminal" from ROCK or CYDIA. Open it and type in the command "passwd" (without the quotes).
You will need to enter the current password, which should be alpine
Then you will need to enter your new one twice.

Re: SSH Info

There are actually 2 users, the account you are logged into when you open terminal and the root account. You'll want to change the password on both, but definitely insure you are changing the root password. Just typing passwd didn't do it for me, I had to change to the root account first. I'll look for the instructions and post them.

Re: SSH Info

Here they are:
Once you have MobileTerminal installed, launch it and you should see a prompt saying this or similar:

iPhoneName: ~ Mobile$

At that prompt, type: passwd
You’ll be prompted for the ‘old’ (current) password for the mobile user. Enter this as the old password: alpine
You’ll then be prompted to enter the new password – so just type in your desired new password. Use good password principles if possible (long and stong). You will not see characters appearing on the screen as you type – that’s normal, not a concern.
You’ll then be prompted to re-enter the new password. Do that.
You should then be returned to the Mobile$ prompt that you started on when opening the MobileTerminal app. There’s no success message to say the password was changed – but if you’re returned to the prompt and do not get an error, the change was successful. And you’re done with change for the mobile account.
The second primary admin account for the iPhone is called root – so now you need to change that as well.
Type this to switch to the root user: login root
You’ll be prompted for the root user’s current password. Enter this: alpine
Type this to start the password change routine again: passwd
Enter the old password for root (it is ‘alpine’, same as for the mobile user) and enter your desired new password twice, just as you did for the mobile account
Done.

Rock did not prompt me to change my password, only to create an account for ROCK itself.....
