iPhones across Australia lit up with the face of '80s crooner Rick Astley this week as a Wollongong TAFE student made international headlines for releasing the first virus to infect the popular smartphone platform.

The virus is able to reset the phone wallpaper to display an image of Astley (a practice known as rickrolling) on unlocked or “jailbroken” iPhones.


/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=11/ (Pit), I am scared of what else can be accomplished after this.

My hamster used to bite me when I picked it up, then it got too old and fat to bite and died in a pool of it's own vomit.

They failed to reenable basic security measures on their iPhones, something any idiot should do.

Honestly, they deserve whatever's coming to them.

Jesus was all like "To those about to rock, I salute you." then he grabbed his mighty axe and rocked the Romans out really hard. Of course they were strict classical music so....
