Push Notification glitch causing IM misrouting

A new problem with Apple’s Push Notification service and hacked iPhones is causing AIM messages to be sent to unknown/random recipients without the user’s knowledge. Till Shadde, CEO of Equinux, discovered the glitch by sending an AIM from his Mac to his iPhone, only to get a response back from an unknown user. According to his Twitter stream, the problem manifests itself when sending a message to a hacked iPhone containing the Push Notification service hack, Shaddde claims that any message sent to a hacked iPhone running the Push hack “seems to be broadcasted to all hacked phones.” Apple is believed to be actively blocking Push Notification service on hacked or unlocked iPhones.
