what is going on at apple seriously? are you up for the gig Timy?
Yeah, I am sure Tim spends all night going over all this code. We never had exploits with S. Jobs.
but not quite often like this
There are a lot of features constantly added to versions of iOS. Every time you add code you add the chance of error somewhere.
If Apple really wants a secure phone, they could eliminate most features.
Ok... not much that can be done.
All I saw was the ability to view photos, correct?
Apple is slipping...
almost all lockscreen bypass bugs only let you see photos, contacts and things like that sometimes messages
I didn't watch the video. Is it similar to before where you have to jump through a bunch of flaming, spike laden hoops, while juggling Faberge eggs and locating Waldo AND Carmen Sandeigo?
You have access to the whole phone application as well--as often the case with these type of flaws--so basically you can make calls, see calls that have been made/received, look at and change contacts if you want, possibly listen to and modify voicemails (depending on your voicemail setup), etc.
Much simpler actually this time around. It'd be interesting to know if this was actually present even before the most recent iOS 6.1.3 update.
it is that's why I posted it
various sites reported this issue on 6.1.3
Right, since this seems to be a new/different lockscreen bypass than the previous one (or two), it made me wonder if it just appeared in 6.1.3 or if it was there even prior to 6.1.3 (in 6.1.2 if not just 6.1 or even 6.0), and how it came to just "appear" suddenly less than a day after 6.1.3 release.
Since you can get to their contacts, doesn't that mean if you click an email address it will take you to the mail app as well? And then you could see all their emails... Yikes.
Saw the story on Cult of Mac, they reported this just affects iPhone 4 users.
It's up on MacRumors as well at http://www.macrumors.com/2013/03/20/new-iphone-4-passcode-security-flaw-discovered-in-ios-6-1-3/. Seemingly also only limited to iPhone 4 (or perhaps essentially pre-Siri phone models), but it seems like there are reports of people reproducing it on iPhone 5 as well.
people probably had this bug before but released it till now to embarrass apple or to get 15 min of internet fame
Man.......I gave up jailbreaking so that I could have the passcode flaw fixed and now I see this crap. What the hell is up with APPLE these days?
I actually was on Android for the past year after someone yanked my trusty 3GS and I di not get my iPhone 5 till like 2 weeks ago.
iOS to compare it to when I was on my 3GS iOS 4 and now iPhone 5 with iOS 6.1 I am really disappointed in the downward trend that APPLE has taken with the iOS operating system!
I mean it has lots of bugs, more so than any bugs that I ever saw when I had a developers license and tested the BETA releases. Just.......BAD!
all major devices have lockscreen bugs I read somewhere today that the samsung galaxy phones have same kind of bypass bug crap...
if you really gave up your jailbreak for such a thing you must be pretty naive for a dev the 6.1.2 lockscreen bypass bug was really hard to do compared to this one and I really think 0.0002% of the iOS community knows how to do this kinds of things, only geeks who jerk around forums know this kinds of crap
Or perhaps the police? Not doing anything illegal but my information is my own and it is private. I don't think that I need to expand on this any further.
iOS is doomed
they can only access phone app and pictures, what? stalking ex girlfriend? hidding porn?
jk you could've installed a jailbreaktweak with enhanced lock security like the android one or password protect those apps with another tweak
They didn't show it, but I'm guessing you could launch the messages app from the Phone app as well. If so, that is a pretty serious security issue.
