Warning:Fake iPhone Jailbreaking Tool For iOS 4.x Is Stealing Passwords

We were waiting for a a new jailbreaking tool for iOS 4.1 but it looks like a fake jailbreaking tools which claims to be using the SHAtter exploit.The fake tool is actually a very dangerous malware which upon running which steal passwords (though it is not clear if it steals passwords from your iOS device or PC).

According to Kaspersky Lab’s Costin Raiu (see disclosure), a rumored jail-breaking utility for iPhone 4 comes with a nasty surprise:

Cybercriminals have definitely been riding the buzz around the supposed jailbreaking tool. It’s presumed to be called “Greenpois0n” and it’s expected to be released any day now. Not surprisingly, we’ve seen a number of fake “Greenpois0n” Trojans.

If you search for the Greenpoison on torrent sites you might be in for a surprise:

Raiu said all the existing “greenpois0n” archives at the moment contain Trojans designed to steal passwords and other private data from infected systems.

In addition to the Trojans, Raiu also found fake (rogue) jail-breaking websites hawking tools that pretends to can jailbreak any version of iPhone with any version of iOS. The average cost for these is $25-$40.
