iOS 7 flaw bypasses lock screen, lets anyone access your contact list
Security issues with iOS 7 seem to be popping up everywhere. Last week, we reported that iOS 7 suffered from a bug which left email attachments unencrypted — and while Apple has prepared a fix for the issue, a new one has appeared in its place.
According to Egyptian neurosurgeon and part-time security researcher Sherif Hashim, a flaw in iOS 7’s Siri voice assistant allows anyone to bypass the iPhone lock screen and access the contact list. In a video posted on his YouTube channel, Hashim detailed the method of attack.
