    I have an original iphone, with the current firmware which I have jailbroken with pwnage

    Something I was wondering about the other day...

    Are there any security risks with a jailbroken iphone?
    For example using the ebay app - im entering my username and password
    Im sure this would be safe to do normally, on a virgin iphone (hopefully!)

    But does jailbreaking have any security risks?

    For all i know i could have installed a keylogging app!

    That's why you only install apps you are sure are fine, word would have gotten out on anything really malicious. Use BossPrefs to turn off SSH when you're not using it and MobileTerminal to change your root password.
