A new vulnerability that has been discovered in iOS 6.1 that can be exploited to bypass passcode locks on iOS devices, it is not “simple” but once it’s performed, it grants access to a device’s contacts, voicemails and photos. AllThingsD contacted Apple to ask them about this bug and Apple responded by saying Apple works hard on a fix.
Reached for comment, Apple said it is hard at work on a fix. “Apple takes user security very seriously” spokeswoman Trudy Muller told AllThingsD. “We are aware of this issue, and will deliver a fix in a future software update.”
This is not the first bug found in iOS 6.1, earlier an iPhone 4S performance bug and the Microsoft Exchange bug were found.
