There are more reports of hackers mucking around with jailbroken iphone where SSH is on and the password has not been changed.  So again, for all you jailbroken iPhone users out there, change your password, or as I do, keep SSH off.   Here are the instructions.  If you want to thank me, a Guinness would be nice. :)

Go to Cydia, manage tab, packages, and see if OpenSSH is on the list of installed packages.

If it is, download and install a package from Cydia called MobileTerminal.

Start MobileTerminal, type in “su”, then type in the default password “alpine”, then type in “passwd”, and set a new password (don’t use ” quote marks ” in any of these commands)
