iPhone Worm Targets People Using Internet Banking [news.bbc.co.uk]
A second worm to hit the iPhone has been unearthed by security company F-Secure.

It is specifically targetting people in the Netherlands who are using their iPhones for internet banking with Dutch online bank ING Direct.

It redirects the bank's customers to a look-a-like site with a log-in screen.

The worm attacks "jail-broken" phones - a modification which enables the user to run non-Apple approved software on their handset.

There are some worse ones out there, and you don't have to be in AU or NL for it to affect you. If you have a jailbroken phone the advice is to change the SSH password from the default.
