    Default are cydia apps safe?

    after installing veency (vnc server) and some other apps from cydia, i got a connection request on veency, from a brazilian ip some hours later, which kept me wondering if there actually are cydia apps containing trojans or the like. well, maybe he just got lucky with a portscan..

    When I had veency installed, I would get random requests to allow connections. Obviously I rejected all of them.

    Cydia applications, for the most part, are safe. You have to use common sense with the apps though, since you're running a jailbroken device (read: access to the System folders). This is how apps like WinterBoard and SBSettings work.

    Every now and then I also get a connection request. Deny them and you'll be ok.
