    I want to test some iOS malware but can't find anything good. The iKee worm is the only thing I've seen that does anything more malicious than stealing contact info (and I can't find source). Does anyone know good iOS malware? If you have an ipa that is even better so I can put it on a test phone and do some reverse engineering.
    I know this doesn't really have to do with jailbreaking, but I wasn't sure where else to post it.

    This isn't android :D

    I haven't come across any but I'm just curious why you want to know and how do you test it? :) Interesting :) Are you making malware that can destroy all iPhones :p

    Hahah, no I am not. I am a security researcher -- my intentions are purely academic (yes, I know that is what Tom Riddle said to Horace Slughorn before making a bunch of horcruxes, but I mean it).

    ----------

    Is there a way to change threads? I was not sure where the best place would be.

    If you have to ask here then you are no security researcher nor an iOS hacker like you have in your sig...

    Just because I know how to hack iOS apps doesn't mean I know about every piece malware which have ever made it out into the wild (I guess I'm more of a hacker than a researcher). Do you have anything intelligent to contribute to the conversation? I would love to be awed by your extensive knowledge of iOS malware.

    ----------

    You guys can also feel free to say something intelligent, rather than just circlejerking and patting each other on the back.

    Can you tell what you consider 'hacking' an iOS app? I hope is not just breaking the in-app purchasing lol

    Don't worry on proving yourself to me, what you wrote in your OP told me all I needed to know.

    I simply expressed my concurrence on a comment by a trusted member.

    No need level to insults.

    I simply expressed my opinion that your comment added nothing to the discussion. You were so quick to jump on the bandwagon calling me a charlatan, yet you still haven't contributed anything useful.

    ----------

    No, I absolutely don't. And clients pay me a lot of money to do much more than that. Unless you can miraculously prove otherwise, I will continue to assume I know more than you on the subject.

    I didn't know kids pay a lot of money for breaking the in-app purchases...
    Anyways, like I said you don't need to tell me anything more.

    It's funny because I posted almost the exact same thing on other sites and it sparked intelligent conversations and useful dialog everywhere else. Really says a lot about the community on this forum... :rolleyes:

    Don't worry guys, I got what I was looking for elsewhere.

    Lol:) Don't get all upset, you should be able to take a joke here and there.
    If you are what you say you are then you wouldn't post what you did and I'm sure you'd be able to use google to research such ios threats.
    There haven't been much malware or worms when it comes to iOS security in the past 6-7 years. There has been a few instances that were patched quick years ago. Mostly security exploits are used to jb devices with bootrom and userland hacks to accomplish untethered jb on all iDevices on a particular firmware version.
    But if you want go into a little more detail on what you're looking to work on.
    Just malware or also commercial spyware and such available to jb devices?
