If you do not have SSH access enabled on your phone, I believe you should be ok. I'm not 100%, I'll have to look into that a little bit more.
If you don't want to SSH, as loudrims stated, just use a program like he posted above to gain access to your iPhone files.
SSH provides more power and manipulation over files and you can do more, but for just replacing icons and files, those programs work just find and I recommend them if you feel a little leery over SSH'ing your device.

The fact that the "mobile" and "root" passwords are known and published, I would highly recommend everybody to change them, running SSH or not. Half the battle is won by hackers already knowing the password to the superuser account, now its just finding a way in.

I have learned one thing in my career, never say never. While disabling SSH will lower the chances greatly, why risk it? I changed both my root and mobile passwords and everything works fine, so I doubt it will cause conflicts with anything.
You mentioned you just wanted to be safe and secure, well that would include changing these. But, if that's a chance you are willing to take and a risk you are willing to accept, who am I to try and convince you otherwise.

Changing the passwords are easy and like my router I always like have my OWN password not some default like every other phone. So I would say it's easy so why not do it, I've done it and it take 5 minutes if that.
Also not having OpenSSH should make you more secure as I've thought which is why I don't have it because I use another program to get to my stuff through the USB cable which is wayyyyy faster than through SSH. However if you have SSH and want to go as far as turning off your Wifi get SBSettings and turn your SSH off. It is a big drain on the battery so even if you turn Wifi off you're secure but SSH could be eating up your battery power for nothing.
