New “UNLOCK NOW FREE” iOS Virus Deleting Phone/SIM Content.

  • April 11, 2011 11:39 pm

Earlier today and into the evening hours, news has begun circulating telling tales of a new iOS virus building momentum as unsuspecting jailbreak/unlock seekers click tainted links via their iPHone. Said links looks something like “UNLOCK NOW FREE”. But instead of unlocking your iPhone when clicking on the accompanying link, the user is presented with a 10-15 second animation, after which, text is displayed on screen saying: “DOWNLOAD UNLOCK 2 NOW FREE”. Finally, the anti-climactic climax involves all of your data being deleted from your iPhone and SIM card.

We’d like to take a moment to reiterate adopting a standard practice of only clicking on links you’re 100% certain are real and to never (repeat: never) click on links within emails, texts, IMs, etc.

If you’ve got a friend or two who also happen to own an iPhone, you may want to share this little tidbit of information. That’s what friends are for, right?
