Mac OS X Trojan-Downloader:OSX/Flashback.I

Mac OS X

You have a Mac, are you infected, by the trojan, probably not.

Run this:

defaults read /Applications/ LSEnvironment

If it says "does not exist" run this:

defaults read ~/.MacOSX/environment DYLD_INSERT_LIBRARIES

If it says "does not exist" It's all good ... OK ..

Otherwise, read this:

iPhoneTracker - Where have you been ?

We've all heard about the how your iPhone tracks your location and keeps an unencrypted file of everywhere you have been. If  you upgrade to IOS 3.3 this will be fixed. I'm not going to go into the debates about this 'feature/bug' but before you upgrade, why don't you just download the iPhoneTracker application and have a look for yourself. It is amazing.

I tried the Mac OS X version from here: but you can also download the Windows version from the same site.

Be prepared for surprises and whatever you do, don't look at your husband's or your wife's  or you kid's iPhone ;-)

  • The iPhone does not need to be connected to the computer for you to analyse it!
  • You can select a date or 'All Time'
  • The playback feature is amazing

iPhone Jailbreak upgrade madness (1013)

I tried to upgrade my iPhone to 4.2.1 after it was jailbroken by Greenpois0n!

It refused the upgrade and then forced me to restore. I tried to restore and got unknown error 1013. I tried all the tips on the Apple page but nothing helped.

So I booted a notebook into Windows 7 and tried the restore from there.. NOTE: I usually only use Mac OS X and Ubuntu at home.

The restore worked on Windows when it had failed over and over again on Mac OS X.

Go figure ??? I thought I'd post the info here. I will have to re-jailbreak my iPhone but at least it works again.

NOTE: If it happens to you, don't do this, just google the error and you will find a work around! I should have google and I would have saved a lot of time!

iPhone Jailbreak, change root and mobile passwords

If you jailbreak your iPhone then you must change root's and user moblie's passwords.

I'm posting this story because I did not see this warning when I jailbroke ;-)

Having said that, I didn't and ended up with the ikee worm.

What was happening is that I could not ssh into my iPhone. whenever I tried I got the error:

ssh_exchange_identification: Connection closed by remote host

So I Googled it and found this link:

At the end of the day what had happened is that because I had not changed the passwords, the ikee worm was, amongst other things, removing my /usr/sbin/sshd daemon

So be warned, change the passwords!

These procedures worked for me: (I didn't use mobile terminal, I used ssh on the iMac)

I removed the worm using ideas from these procedures:

You may also want to disable ssh (using SBSettings) when you don't need sshd.
