    I just noticed it in installer. Its virus protection for your iPhone and a cuple of other things. Has anyone tried it?

    Just wanted to know if it was legit or not. I really dont think it is.

    Ok I guess no one tried it. How can they make virus protection when as far as I know there are no viruses for the iPhone. Just crappy software. Oh and that old 1.1.3 prep thing. There's no virus library out there what would they scan for?

    I have no idea what this Installer package does (you brought it to my attention). I will look into it in a bit.

    Was it referring to the jailbreakme.com TIFF exploit? I didn't even read it over.
