    Default Four blank icons contsantly adding themselves on the phone

    Hope some one can make sense of this..

    Every time i get on CYDIA for an update or use SAFARI my phone gets four secret (blank)

    icons on the screen with the same detalis constant in all of them. I notice them when i move icons around as they get highlighted.

    The address is Design by 999 - Frank M. Jr. and all it is is a pic of a shark.

    I erase history but it always keeps coming back. How can i clean my phone like a virus

    scan or similar???

    (its a 1st gen 8gb on 2.0)

    This is on a normal screen



    This is when i hilight the icons



    This is when i tap on a X



    EVery time i delete them they always come back straight away.

    Does any one know how to stop them as its frustrating when you touch one as it goes straight to the website

    There is a possibility that your iPhone may have been hacked. It is quite easy to do, as everybody knows the username and password. You may have to end up doing a full software restore.

    As everyone knows the software password? What do you mean?

    If you've jailbroken it and have SSH installed, unless you changed it, the default password to get into the iPhone is 'Alpine'.

    But it's such a long shot, you don't even need to worry about it.

    As long as you don't use this for evil, the iPhone details are:
    username - root
    password - alpine

    It is still possible to get access to someone else's iPhone without theirs being jailbroken. Lethal's iPhone is jailbroken, so this is a possibility.
