    That would sure be a surprise in the morning. Nothing is secure I guess.

    easy answer around this is change your ssh password or turn ssh off when not in use ;)

    I recall when I first started jailbreaking one of the steps was to change the root password just to be safe.

    30 seconds, done, non-issue

    I'd be kind of amused if this happened to me.

    I really like that song, been humming it ever since I read this story :)

    Yea, the prevention for this type of event takes 2-3 minutes yet very few have changed their SSH root and mobile passwords.

    I got rickrolled :(
    Serves me right for not changing default SSH password, I'm glad it was nothing worse!

    Oh well, fixed now. And password changed ;)
