Jailbroken iPhone users beware: Rick Astley could be appearing on your phone soon, and he's never going to give you up. So at least the new worm crawling around down under says.

Some iPhone users who have jailbroken phones have been reporting a virus that changes the default photo to a picture of singer Rick Ashley and the line "ikee is never going to give you up." CNET reports that this is the first virus to target the iPhone. So far it only appears to be affecting unlocked phones and there haven't been any reports of this virus outside Australia. If you're afraid it might affect you, PMP Today recommends you change the phone's default password, as it typically affects users who haven't changed it after installing SSH.
