Jailbroken iPhones Send Push Notifications to Random Strangers?
Certain jailbroken iPhones may be sending your push notifications to complete strangers, says Till Schadde, founder of Equinux.
According to a Tech Crunch report, Schadde has discovered a bug that sends your AIM messages to random recipients without your knowledge or consent. The problem only seems to occur with jailbroken devices.
Schadde was sending a message from his desktop to his iPhone when he received a message back from a complete stranger. The recipient also forwarded him a screenshot of the notification he received.
On his Twitter feed Schadde posts that, there seems to be a brand new hack that reactivates push with the effect that received msg are broadcasted to strangers
