OOPS!! another iPhone lockscreen bypass

Apple's iOS 7 brings a number of visual changes, but somehow the lock screen remains leaky. According to Forbes, the iOS7 lock screen can be bypassed thanks to one of the new features in the OS, the Control Center which can be accessed from any screen in iOS, brings shortcuts to four frequently-used apps. By opening up the Control Center, and launching the Calculator app and then launching the Camera app once again through the Control Center in the Calculator screen, anyone can access, delete, email and tweet the pictures in the Camera Roll. All this without having to enter the passcode on the lock screen. The vulnerability is discovered by Jose Rodriguez from Spain living in Tenerife sent the video showing how to bypass the lockscreen on Apple’s beta version of iOS 7 in just a few seconds.<more>
