Did you ever install the SSH add on via cydia? If not, then you dont have to worry about hackers.

SSH into your phones IP address while its at your home network using putty, then login as root/alpine second use the passwd command to change the default password for root.

---------- EDIT ----------

This is normal,it stays open and running by default once its opened--use sbsettings task manager (by swiping just as if you would be deleting mail) to exit out of the mail and it should stay closed until you open it agian.

If you don't know how to change the password once you login as root with the alpine password. Type
Code:
passwd root
and change the password, also changing the mobile password is recommended type
Code:
passwd mobile

Howdy gang... Quick question, as long as I can remember "mail" is always running right behind "phone" in SBS. Now I'm pretty familiar with SSH and whatnot, but HOW exactly can you tell if a virus is running in da background? Do any of these virus' have names? Specific to 3G, firm 3.1.2, bla, bla, bla...

I'll keep snooping around for some answers. I'm sure there's many a discussion about this that I simply haven't found yet. Thanks!!!
