Malware alert since iPhone user's aren't accustomed to seeing these types of things:

A heads-up if your iPhone is jail-broken and NOT Apple's latest 64-bit model. There's a nasty little exploit making the rounds, designed for stealing Apple passwords and log-in credentials. You should at least be aware it's out there. So far it doesn't appear to infect the 5s.

It doesn't seem to say which jailbreak specific customizations are being installed to get this spyware. I didn't even see it say that a specific jailbreaking tool is installing the spyware.

There's most detail in the Reddit threads linked within the Ars article. It's not even associated with any specific app. Seems to have the Cydia guys stumped so far.

I'm very happy for malware to infest and devour all jailbroken phones.
