To prevent infection it is necessary to change the default password for the root user and if possible disable the iPhone SSH connections. Finally, changing the root password as soon as possible. Apple will not do anything because you already said to Jailbreak is unsafe and illegal. SophosLabs is currently analyzing the worm's code and indicate that at least four variants have been written.

The virus can be easily removed by changing the password of the terminal and deleting some files, but publication of the complete source code of the malware and its variants allow the arrival of another type of malware that will not only illustrate to users with the image the author's favorite singer.
