AT&T glitch causing upload issues on iPhone 4

http://content.usatoday.com

If you're an iPhone 4 user having trouble sending pictures or other media, blame a network glitch from AT&T. The company says software issues in Alcatel-Lucent network equipment are hampering upload speeds for the iPhone 4, the Associated Press reports. The problems have been discovered only in some areas of the U.S., and AT&T is working to remedy the situation, says the AP. The upload woes represent the latest problem facing Apple's highly-anticipated smartphone since launching two weeks ago. Users had reported poor reception, blamed on the device's antenna. Apple responded by claiming an incorrect formula for determining signal strength was the reason behind the weaker reception. Also, as Cnet reports, the reception troubles have spawned a series of lawsuits.

AT&T blames slow iPhone 4 uploads on Alcatel-Lucent

http://news.cnet.com

AT&T is blaming the iPhone 4's sluggish upload speeds in some areas of the country on 3G wireless gear from supplier Alcatel-Lucent. On Wednesday, AT&T issued a statement saying a software glitch in the Alcatel-Lucent equipment is limiting data upload speeds from smartphones and data sticks using the latest version of 3G technology known as HSUPA. HSUPA is an acronym for High Speed Upload Packet Access. It increases upload speeds to between 500 kilobits per second and 1.2 megabits per second. "AT&T and Alcatel-Lucent jointly identified a software defect--triggered under certain conditions--that impacted uplink performance for Laptop Connect and smartphone customers using 3G HSUPA-capable wireless devices in markets with Alcatel-Lucent equipment," said Jenny Bridges, a spokeswoman for the company. Since the iPhone 4 is currently the only smartphone that AT&T offers that is using HSUPA, AT&T said that the problem only affects a small number of its wireless customers, which includes some laptop data stick users, who also use the HSUPA technology. AT&T said the company has come up with a temporary fix that should restore upload data speeds to regular 3G speeds.

Google Updates Google Earth App for iPhone

http://www.pcworld.com

Google today announced version 2.0 of Google Earth for the iPhone and iPod touch, just over a year after releasing the first edition of the application, a piece of software which quickly turned into the second most popular download in Apple's App Store. But the past year has also been a stormy one for both Google and Apple, as their respective wireless partners, Verizon Wireless and AT&T, start to duke things out in court.

Google Earth 2.0

First launched in October of last year, the first edition of Google Earth finds out your location either through GPS or by using Google's search function to narrow down your location. You can then use the iPhone's multi-touch gestures for an interactive experience, rotating the phone to switch to a horizon view or making two-fingered circles to spin the landscape around, for instance.

iPhone Worm 'Rickrolls' Jailbroken iPhones

http://www.pcmag.com

F-Secure and many others are reporting on the arrival of the first iPhone worm, spreading in the wild.

The worm, named "ikee" after its author, affects only "jailbroken" iPhines which have been modified to remove restrictions on what software can run on the device. Jailbreaking typically opens up access to certain processes including SSH, with a default root password ('Alpine' on the iPhone).

The worm changes your iPhone's wallpaper to a picture of Rick Astley ("Never Gonna Give You Up") and a message that "ikee is never gonna give you up".

To protect your jailbroken iPhone against infection change the root password. F-Secure has provided instructions here.

ikee appears to be following the lead of the hacker who recently started hacking jailbroken iPhones, locking them up and demanding payment for an unlock code.

World’s Second iPhone Worm Called iPhone/Privacy.A Steals Private Date From Jailbroken Handsets

http://www.softsailor.com

Remember Ikee’s first iPhone worm in the world which targeted jailbroken devices in Australia of users who didn’t change the default root password? Codenamed Ikex, the worm changed your default wallpaper with a Rick Astley picture and got you rickrolled, and besides that it didn’t pose a threat. Well, it was just a matter of time until the worm was handed to another hacker who turned it into “evil malware.” Although Ikee said that the worm was released only to get the attention of users who didn’t change their “alpine” default root password, it seems like another hacker has other plans.

The new worm is dubbed as “iPhone / Privacy.A” and it acts “in secret.” The Privacy.A iPhone worm is capable of retrieving emails, SMS, contacts, multimedia files, calendar appointments, or basically all the date your apps can record, to an untraced source. At the moment security experts do not know everything about the worm, but still they’ve rated the worm as low-risk. I wouldn’t be so sure about that, and I think Apple should make the iPhone more secure because the Cupertino-based company owes that to millions of users around the world.
