Migrate to the cloud – Introduction

It’s been almost 2 years since I update the content of this blog. There was some things happened on the server and configuration apart of Wordpress and plugins upgrade during that time, but that won’t be noticeable on the the surface since the content is static.

Scary fact on jail broken iPhones

Did you know that:

  • iPhone OS is basically an *nix variant?
  • Every *nix system will have at least 1 administrator called ‘root’ and some regular user?
  • Every iPhone shipped is having same ‘root’ password and a regular user

So is it dangerous? Not exactly. On regular iPhone device there is noway for somebody to exploit those userid and password, *but* it will be completely differrent when we are talking about jailbroken device. So if you are a novice user and faithful user of app store then nothing to worry about. You can safely stop reading here and have a nice dream.

But if you are having a jailbroken device then you have to worry, don’t ever install OpenSSH package before you change the default passwords

How? Simply download console package from cydia and do a regular password change procedure (just google on it) don’t forget on root password too.
