A New Kind of Passcode Flaw is Found on iOS 6.1.3

Apple iOS 6.1.3Apple wanted to put an end to a nasty passcode glitch when it released the iOS 6.1.3 update recently. The flaw made it possible for intruders to gain access to much of the user personal information by canceling an incoming call in the lockscreen, followed by pressing the power button.

Unfortunately, this is not where it ends as Apple iPhone 4/4S and iPhone 5 with Siri disabled and running the new iOS 6.1.2 build still has a flaw that makes it possible for malicious individuals to access contacts and photos.

This time around, users can make the Voice Dial command and the quickly eject the SIM card. The rather unusual method offers intruders an open access to the phone’s contacts list. Adding a new photo also allows them to access photos stored on the phone. This is another critical security hole that Apple will surely take notice and we may soon see the iOS 6.1.4 rolled out to address this issue.
