iPhone Root Password Cracked

Posted by Xavier Ashe on July 6, 2007

We managed to obtain and crack the hashs of the user passwords for the
iPhone OS. More information could be found at our development Wiki here
(link removed).

Edit: cause you digg people broke the poor wiki:

The password for root is “alpine”
The “mobile” user accounts password is “dottie”

Is it sick to have root pasword to all iPhones worldwide? Well not really, there is no terminal yet to login 😛

    I warned people about this. Remember, this is Apple's first shot at the phone. There were bound to be many security issues (along with other issues) on the first release.
