iPhone hackers steal ID of users 'jail broken' devices

NEW YORK -- Hackers have stolen the identities of some iPhone users and a security company calls it the largest known Apple account theft caused by Malware.

Thieves targeted only so-called "jail broken" iPhone, which owners accessed restricted parts of their phone's file systems to customize the device.

Once infected with the malware, the iPhone gives up information that prevents owners from recovering their phones once they have been hijacked.
