    Greetings, I have been jail broken for a couple of months now and love it. However, I still have this nagging feeling of securty. I am using Cydia and have not added nor removed any of the the default sources. My question, how do I know that any particular tweek is legit? One of my main attractions to iOS, vs Android, is the security aspect of Apple. How do I avoid downloading a trojan, worm, virus, etc. through a tweek or are there such things associated with iOS?

    (Disregard this if you're on 7.0.6)

    Only thing I'd worry about is the fact that you need to patch a security flaw that was closed.

    You can find SSLPatch on Petrichs private repo. Start Cydia, navigate to*Manage->Sources->Edit->Add*and then enter*http://rpetri.ch/repo* as repo to be added. Once done, search for SSLPatch and install it. =)

    Besides that, just always read a bit about the tweaks you want to install. If someone put a bad tweak out there, I know someone would report it right away.

    Just keep track of what you're installing. That way if something goes haywire, you'll know what to remove.

    As long as you're not using a pirate repo to dl things, you'll be ok.

    I admit that I am ignorant in this arena, but how do I recognize a pirate repo?

    You'll have to go out of your way to add one and Cydia will warn you, so you have no reason to worry about that.
