Australian admits creating first iPhone virus

Monday, November 9, 2009

By Brigid Andersen

A 21-year-old Australian man has admitted creating what is thought to be the first virus to infect Apple iPhones.

The virus, which can spread from phone to phone, changes the iPhone’s wallpaper to a photograph of 1980s singer Rick Astley – best known for his hit Never Gonna Give You Up.

Perth man killed in Djakarta bombings, OPED & ABC News Article link.

Sincere condolences for the family of Perth man Nathan Verity and prayers for the others, local & foreign, struck down by the cowardly bombers.

Nathan Verity - family man from Perth - vale mate 😦

Nathan leaves a wife and 5 year old child here in Perth.

His father and wife now face the heartbreak of formal identification and repatriation of their loved son and husband.

There are indications that the outrage has been perpetrated by a splinter group of Jemaa Islamiyeh.

Intelligence indicates those responsible may well be formerly jailed terrorists ( these are NOT freedom fighters ) who had been released after “rehabilitation” programmes.

I am against the death penalty even in this case, but these mongrel dogs must be locked up for the term of their natural life and made to do useful labor. The “religious” leaders who inspire and incite them deserve the same.

Nearly 9 in 10 Aussies stressed out: Lifeline ABC News Article link.

It’s time we spoke up about mental health as  a PRIORITY.

The old idea that depression affects 1 in 5 is CLEARLY under-estimating the epidemic of mental illness.

We in the media are banned from covering  suicides despite the toll being greater than road trauma, and air-time being given to dangerous quacks like “DR Death” Nietschke.
