    BBC NEWS | Technology | Worm attack bites at Apple iPhone

    The first worm to infect the Apple iPhone has been discovered spreading "in the wild" in Australia.
    The self-propagating program changes the phone's wallpaper to a picture of 80s singer Rick Astley with the message "ikee is never going to give you up".

    Interesting, but did we really need a reference video of the singer, Dino?

    Interesting, good thing this guy didn't make it harmful. He teaches a lesson to idiots. Anyone would have to make several bad decisions before it could even end up on their phone.

    The whole rick astley thing is bizzare to me.
