Apple The web went aflame today with headlines like "First iPhone worm discovered", and many other variants. Most of those headlines, however, left out a very important little fact which diminishes the impact of the news considerably: it only affects jailbroken iPhones with SSH installed, and with default root passwords.

nope:
symbian and blackberry require signed apps and don't give root access to most of the apps in contrast to iPhone.
If application does not allow password change, then root access should not be allowed.
As I said this is insecure device. Has nothing to do with crappy car comparison. Bad design is bad design.
