Am I Infected with iPhone SMS Virus?
If your phone suddenly begins calling people on its own, sends text messages without you doing so and you see an odd SMS message then chances are you have been infected by the iPhone SMS hack.
WHAT SHOULD YOU DO IF YOU ARE INFECTED?
The only way to remove it would be to fully wipe your device and reload the firmware.
The text message which actually initiates the memory corruption will contain a square box or (non-recognizable alphanumeric character).
WHAT TO DO TO PREVENT IT?
1. Use the Airplane mode to prevent malicious messages reach you.
2. Turn OFF your iPhone.
3. If your Device is jailbroken, open MobileTerminal or connect to your phone via SSH and change the permissions of MobileSMS.app to none. This prevents SMS application from running on the phone.
4. Keep frequent backups so that you can restore to default settings via iTunes, if you get infected.
