Yet another iPhone lockscreen vulnerability. This time in iOS 7.02 [VIDEO] | Apple, Mac, MacOS, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it
Another day, another privacy vulnerability found in iOS.

When will Apple learn that a lockscreen should really, properly, lock the phone?
Gust MEES's insight:

 

Israeli researcher Dany Lisiansky uncovered the flaw, and made a video to demonstrate a way to take a victim’s locked iPhone running iOS 7.02, and ===> access their call history, voicemails and entire list of contacts. <===

Security flaws found in Apple's iOS7

Security flaws found in Apple's iOS7 | Apple, Mac, MacOS, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it
Two security vulnerabilities have been discovered in Apple's new mobile operating system, less than 24 hours after launch.
Gust MEES's insight:

 

In iOS7 this can be done even when the phone is locked with a passcode, as the voice-activated assistant Siri can be instructed to carry out the task.

 

The other flaw is potentially even more serious - allowing users' email and social networking accounts to be hijacked even when the user has locked and password-protected their phone.
