New iPhone lock screen bypass bug found on iOS 6.1.3, gives access to contacts and photos
Another iPhone lock screen bypass bug has been discovered and this one affects the latest version of iOS: 6.1.3. This version was just released and contained a fix for vulnerabilities that allowed users to skip over the lock pin to access some content.
This latest version is actually fairly easy to reproduce, but it requires more than just software tricks and taps. You have to actually eject the SIM tray mid dial in order to glitch it fully. The bug, discovered by YouTube poster 'videosdebarraquito', has been independently verified by internal testing here at TNW. You'll notice that the device in the video below is apparently an iPhone 4: [[VIDEO]
We actually could only duplicate the behavior on one device that has Siri capability, an iPhone 4S, but not the iPhone 5 (yet). This means that the bug appears to be an iPhone 4 or 4S-only affair, but that could just be a lack of ability to time it correctly. We're still investigating the iPhone 5, but the folks at iPhoneblog.de have apparently had some luck making it work on that device.
