iPhone bug allows users to bypass the lockscreen

Posted on Thursday, October 28th, 2010 in Mobile by CharlesMumHY CharlesMumHY

One of the iPhone’s nice features is that you can set up a custom password (I know all phones have this but..) for your lockscreen. So is your phone safe with it? Well, apparently its not.

A few sites have reported that an exploit for the iPhone 4 or iPhone 3G(S) running iOS 4.1 allows a user to skip past the lockscreen and access voice mail, contacts, call history, and have the ability to call people.

The Exploit:

  1. Tap the Emergency Call button
  2. Dial ###
  3. Tap the Call button and near simultaneously Press the Lock button (on the top of the phone)
