Security Hole Makes It Easy To By-Pass Password Protection In iPhone

Don’t lose your iPhone because that password protection is worthless. It appears Apple accidentially built in a front door for hackers in addition to a back door for itself. A security flaw allows users, including people who steal your phone to access e-mail, text and voice messages with a few simple key strokes.  By clicking “emergency call” and then double clicking the ‘Home” button, any user can access the address book, the dial keypad and voice mail. Reports are, there is a patch coming but it’s unknown when it might be released.
