    Hypothetically speaking, couldn't somebody "break into" another individuals iPod if they had access to the same network, thus potentially being able to access and destroy files?

    Actually, Apple didn't make SSH. Hackers implemented in into something usable on the iPod. Anyway, its true that most people don't change the pass and most people ALSO leave their network unlocked so its possible but who's gonna know they can do it? I have my network secured AND have SSH off when I'm not using it. It wastes LOTS of battery power anyway. So, I'd say most people keep it off. But yeah, its possible.

    Wrongo again buddy! SSH is built in to most operating systems. In this case, the iPhone OS. Which is based on Mac OS X. Which is based on BSD. And that is where it gets it. The "Hackers" Just put in OpenSSH so it could act as a Server and Client.

    OK, SORRY, I was wrong. But isn't Mac OS X Unix based?

    Yes, yes it is. Please do a Wikipedia Search for BSD, Mac OS X, and Unix.

    Linux is Unix based. So is BSD, Mac OS X, and a lot of other Operating Systems.
