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".

The picture of Rick Astley is believed to be a nod to the internet phenomenon known as Rickrolling, where web users are tricked into clicking on what they believe is a relevant link, only to find that it actually takes the user to a video of the pop star's song "Never gonna give you up".
:lol: How insightful of them to pick up on that; I never would have made the connection, myself.

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.
