fix the ikee worm on iphone

One day, I found the background of the lock screen (the background image on the "slide to unlock" screen) was changed by some application.

In fact this is the first worm which infects iphone.
The worm is known as ikee, and it only affects “jail-broken” phones, because a user has removed Apple’s protection mechanisms to allow the phone to run any software.

How to fix:

Firmware 3.0 doesnt have apt-get installed by default when you jailbreak it, so u need to install Aptitude from Cydia.
