    I just went to reply to a text message, and my screen was taken over by the classic green cascading letters of the Matrix movie. When i tried to launch phone app same thing.

    I waited a few minutes and now it seems gone. Until it returns?


    WHAT IS THIS? HAVE I BEEN HACKED??

    is there a Matrix screen saver for webOS? I certainly don't have it installed. What's generating this on my phone? Do i need to change all my passwords now?

    There was a 'Matrix' theme out there: Matrix Theme | webOS Nation
    But eek-knows how it made it onto your screen, if it wasn't installed by you!

    It's the screensaver that comes with terminal app. My TP's battery is dead so I can't remember the name of WebOS charging screensaver or the terminal app's name


    Edit: screensaver is "Exhibition" and Matrix comes with wTerm

    Thank you thank you!

    I don't know what caused Exhibition to display the WTerm screensaver (vs Time as usual), but that's got to be it. It was on TStone and i do have that app installed. I was stumped for an origin of the visual.

    For a minute i was really worried somehow i got a virus through an attachment! Is that even possible these days? On webOS i mean.

    Ha, I forgot about that and couldn't remember where it came from, but I do vaguely remember it.

    If you accidentally tapped the top left corner while in Exhibition mode, then tapped the option for wTerm's screensaver, that would have done it!
    Did you know:

    webOS ran on a Treo 800 during initial development.
