iOS 6.1 Bug: iPhone Lock Screen Bypass

Apple again, is in midst of a number of complains as numerous bugs and flaws are detected in it’s latest version of it’s iOS operation system, 6.1. However, the most shocking or should I say exciting was posted in a video on YouTube which goes by the name “iPhone Lock Screen Security Flaw”

iPhone security system works by entering a 4-digit PIN number, which therefore grants the user access to the phone however, this latest flaw allows a potential user to bypass this verification within a few seconds! In order to exploit this yet un-patched security flaw, all one has to do is cancel an emergency call and press certain buttons which fools the device in keeping the “Phone” application on. Although, the key presses are required to be precisely-timed, once successful a user will be able to view contacts, make calls and view call logs.
