Default iOS 6.1.3 lockscreen Exploit found.. already...

SOURCE: http://www.tomshardware.com/news/iPh...New,21652.html

Ok this has to be a record, the version 6.1.3 has been exploited, and it just came out this week. It gets better... it's even easier now to go through the lock screen, compare to the older version and here's how:

"All you need is for voice dialing to be enabled and to pull out the SIM card mid-call. This brings up the dialer and from there you can access photos, call history, and more."

Good job Apple, that's some solid programming you did there ;)

Now I feel sorry for companies who switched to iPhones....

And you keep hearing about the Samsung exploits for the lock screen, but those are nearly impossible to get in.
Yup, Apple iOS just works...

Sure, its an exploit.

But you need access to the phone...mid call? I dont think this is a real world exploit to garner information is it? Or do I misunderstand the exploit?

You can make emergency calls on any cell phone without having to go through the lock screen. Make an emergency call then pull out the sim card and Bob's your uncle.
