    KeeQ, just because you modified your iPhone (what jailbreaking it is) doesn't make it legal for a computer hacker to come in and play around on it. Your logic is all kinds of flawed. Now in your opinion, someone who jailbreaks theirs might DESERVE to get hacked, but as Brandon pointed out, modding your iPhone only violates your TOS and relieves Apple from any liability they have to replace your phone and such. Its still illegal for the hacker to hack your phone, modded or not.

    Very true, but the charges against the person would most likely be 'unauthorized netwrok intrusion' and the act of being on the network unlawfully would be prosecuted; it's alot easier to prove than showing X person was on Y computer (or iPhone, as it were).

    cliffsnotes:

    i know its not against the LAW to jailbreak an iPhone.
    but it is against Apples rules, laws whatever you want to call them, to jailbreak the phone.

    if you don't jailbreak the phone, you shouldnt have these problems

    if you do jailbreak the phone, you can get hacked.

    jailbreaking is wrong by apple
    hacking is wrong by the federal laws of the US

    1 + 1 = 2

    2 wrongs dont make a right

    3 rights make a left.

    i think because apple states that they're not liable once the phone is jail broken as opposed to it actually being prohibited, that it's not illegal. the hacker in question would be the one in the wrong, not the person who owns the jail broken iphone. however, you do still run the risk of being hacked since it's no longer under apple's "protection" so to speak.

    It's not illegal, because there are no state or federal laws that prohibit the altering of an iPhone.
    Buying one enters you into a warranty contract (unilateral contract); you're bound to the terms of the agreement and if you break them, like modding your iPhone, you void the contract and Apple is relieved of any and all liability.

    Looks like the attacks on these phones have gone from informational to malicious: http://arstechnica.com/apple/news/20...hone-users.ars

    According to Intego, the malware scans for phones on a local network and a range of IPs with an open SSH port, then attempts to log in using the default root password that is the same on all iPhones. This is the same method used by the first malicious iPhone worm that came out earlier this month. The IPs scanned by this particular worm include those in the Netherlands, Portugal, Hungary, and Australia.
    After it finds a vulnerable phone, iBotnet.A changes the root password to "ohshit" (we think that's a pretty accurate assessment of the situation) and connects to a command and control center (CnC) in Lithuania in order to upload personal data collected from the iPhone. What makes this server a CnC is the fact that distributes executables to the jailbroken phones and assigns each device an identifier so it can reconnect later for further action. Most importantly, however, iBotnetA specifically changes an entry in the iPhone's hosts file for ING Direct—this means users who try to go to ING Direct from their phones after the file has been changed will be redirected to another page that looks just like it. If they try to log in, the scammers will then have their bank login credentials and can transfer out any cash that is available

    That's all I'd need to hear to not 'jailbreak' my iPhone.

    Honestly, I looked up 'jailbreak' on Wikipedia to see what it was and it sounds like it was written by hackers simply for this purpose. The names of these programs sound like some rox0r shit.
    'QuickPwn', 'PwnageTool' and 'blackra1n'? No thanks.

    don't know who wrote that, but the program used to jailbreak is called 'redsn0w,' formerly 'yellowsn0w.'
