How to fix some mysterious problems.


Everytime i wanted to connect winscp i get above message. Does anyone know how to fix it? I had installed and reinstalled winscp, openssh and openssl number of times but it is still the same. My firewall disable whenever i connecting. I have changed my password from 'alpine' to XXXXXXXXXXX, my ssh was set to ON but its remain the same when connecting. Am i infected with Ikee virus? How do i know whether i am infected with Ikee virus or not? How to check? As far as i do know when Rickroll wallpaper appears on my home screen or during make call, yes i am infected fortunately i don't have those. The only thing i keep on getting eror message when try to connect. iphone 4 4.2.1 32GB 03.10.1 / Jailbreak with greenpois0n RC6.1 / Install Cydia with Redsn0w.

Appreciate it if someone can help me up. Thank you.

Are you able to SSH in? And are you using mobile or root user to login with?

NO, I am not able to SSH in now. Previously, I am using root to login. Why I kept on getting this message "server unexpectedly closed network connection" while connecting winscp via ssh. Am I Infected?

If the possibility of a virus is really worrying you that much, I'd almost suggest restoring, re-jailbreaking, and using MobileTerminal to change your passwords (see before instaling OpenSSH. That's the safest way of disinfecting.

Failing that, if you do have the Ikee virus, you'll see the following files in your system:

  • /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.ikey.bbot.plist
  • /bin/poc-bbot
  • /bin/sshpass

These will all need to be deleted, and the SSH server re-enabled by running the following as root:

  • launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.openssh.sshd.plist

If you install iFile from Cydia you'll be able to browse your filesystem and delete them. To run the launchctl command, you'll need MobileTerminal (see

Delete this files: (I used iFile / System / Library / LaunchDaemons / com.ikey.bbot.plist / Bin / poc-bbot

Reinstall OpenSSH

worked for me and for some reason I need to do it anytime I jb even though I never leave my SSh password to default and never got the rick roll virus..

but it works :)

I need your advice.

Should I type in the following commands in mobile terminal one line at a time, and press return after each line.

rm /bin/poc-bbot rm /bin/sshpass rm /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.ikey.bbot.plist rm /var/lock/bbot.lock rm /var/log/youcanbeclosertogod.jpg rm /var/mobile/Library/LockBackground.jpg rm /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.saurik.Cydia.Startup.plist rm /usr/libexec/cydia/startup rm /usr/libexec/cydia/startup-helper rm /usr/libexec/cydia/

When I am done, reboot my iPhone, will this solve my server unexpectedly closed network connection problem?

Just use iFile, you'll find it easier in a GUI. And you don't want to delete half of those either! Just the three I specified above. Well I guess you could delete the jpgs, but it's easier to just change your background normally.
