Ikee - First iPhone Worm

There is a news that some iPhone users suddenly had their iPhone wallpaper changed into a picture of '80s singer Rick Astley with the words "Ikee is never gonna give you up"? It is actually a worm known as Ikee, the very first virus created for iPhones. Well, its not that bad because it is not destructive and does not compromise any data contained on the iPhone, but its still a virus… Ikee was developed in Australia and it has not spread beyond Australia.

Ikee can infect only iPhones that have been unlocked and IPhones purchased through regular channels on a plan with an authorized SIM are not at risk. By the way, Ikee’s creator is also the one who created worm on Twitter under the name Ikeeex.
