Trojan virus can infect your Apple iphones instantly

With more and more mobile devices becoming more like general computing machines, it’s no surprise that Trojans can also be written targeting them. Many of us think that Apple's iPhone is the best thing that has ever happened to world of mobiles, but then if you also though iphone would be safe from viruses, then... you are wrong.

iPhone users should be on the look out for a package called "iPhone firmware 1.1.3 prep," described as something you need to install before updating to the new 1.1.3 firmware. According to various sources, once the Trojan is installed it simply displays the word "shoes."

However, the Trojan has an ability to overwrites several legitimate applications, including Erica's Utilities, Launcher, Doom, and OpenSSH. This means if you uninstall the Trojan, you will need to reinstall these applications also.
