Shop Talk / Re: My iphone 6 was hacked
« Last post by Ogre on September 29, 2017, 04:41:17 pm »
There have been several major security breaches in iOS lately.


One allowed someone to take root control of the device via Bluetooth (everything with BlueTooth is vulnerable, by the way, so if you have a device with BlueTooth, turn it off and update immediately. If you don't have a patch level of at least September, then leave it off unless you're actively using it, then turn it off when you're done.)


The other doesn't have any specific information, but it's Critical and allows a remote attacker to gain control of your device.


You need to be on version 11.1 at this point to avoid it. With your device not responding, you won't be able to do that very easily. Take it to the Apple store and ask for help.


All of that said, there's a possibility that your touch screen is broken, and your device hasn't been compromised. Sometimes, when a touch screen goes bad, it will just start acting like it's being touched all over. It happened to my Note 4 after I'd had it just over 2 years, same kind of thing, just random stuff acting like it's being touched.

Either way, go to the Apple Store for support.

Shop Talk / My iphone 6 was hacked
« Last post by Pervarotti on September 29, 2017, 04:27:48 pm »
The keyboard started doing weird shit... then it stopped working at all.   I watched buttons being pressed, someone wrote a text message to "No name" that said Wa and had a bunch of emoticons of different cars.   Then they made another message with a caterpiller, a squid and some other animal.  I was sitting there staring at it, they went through my notes on my phone and all of the sudden the camera mode was on, pointed at my face.

I have tried turning it on and off several times but the touch screen doesn't work 95% of the time.   When I turn my phone on, someone directs it to emergency mode.

No idea how it happened as I haven't downloaded any links.   Nor do I know what to do.   I still haven't called my bitch mom to say happy birthday despite a message from my dad instructing me to do so.   I don't know her number by heart and the phone isn't working at all now.

Any ideas on what to do?  I would hate to have to go to the apple store.   I hate that place cause it's a zoo.

As a Waffle House connoisseur, they don't serve pancakes. Hence the name WAFFLE HOUSE.

Slurping on the syrup slathered cock of some drifter isn't the same as eating pancakes at waffle house

You might want to get your blood sugar checked.  One of the regulars around here just died from pancreatitis due to something to do with undiagnosed diabetes from drinking too much beer and rumpie.

Shop Talk / Re: Who would like to spend 4 hours on plane next to?

I sat on a plane next to Tawny Kitean, the red head from the White Snake video for "Here I go Again". I asked her who she was. LOL. And she had to remind me. She was a hot mess.
