    As you all know, Apple has got a 'killswitch' for supposedly malicious applications. What I am wondering, is how often does the iPhone/iTouch connect to the server for the list. And a by the way, would it be possible to host a proxy server with an edited killswitch page over WiFi? Anyone know how the page is set out? This really interests me. Has anyone got more details?

    I've heard it only happens with the Iphone. If you want to disable it, use bossprefs.

    (Well, I'm half-American too)

    The killswitch page is an old-style plist file, something like:
    {"AppName" = "SomeApp"; bundleIdentifier = "com.somecompany.myblahapp"}
    I'm not sure.

    NerveGas (Johnathan Zdzsomething) did "hack" the list with DNS spoofing, he managed to block Maps.app!

    The killswitch ain't no thing. I'd me more concerned with SpringBoard's "allow-obliterate-device" entitlement.

            <string>com.apple.springboard</string>
