The creator of the rickrolling iPhone worm has spoken of possible job offers
and death threats since the release of the Jesus Phone malware last weekend.
Ashley Towns, 21, from Wollongong, New South Wales, Australia, told local
media he received both threats and offers of possible work a day after he was
identified as the creator of what’s been described as the first strain of iPhone
malware. The malicious code created by Towns changed the wallpaper of jailbroken
iPhone devices it infected to a picture of cheesy ’80s pop star Rick Astley.
