How to Unlock iOS 7.0.2 Lock Screen

Users who have updated to the latest firmware of iOS 7 are now facing a new bug. The Lockscreen vulnerability in this operating system can’t guarantee your data safety. Third-party people are able to access your smartphone through taps… Apple will surely have to release iOS 7.0.3 version soon to fix this problem while iPhone owners should be careful.

It is hard to say how hackers and other people discover holes in Apple’s mobile firmware versions. Even though it is a complex method some might use it and get into your device passing your lockscreen feature without a passcode. The issues was discovered by Dany Lisiansky who figured out it was possible to launch your iPhone application with the help of Siri assistant on the lockscreen.

This method will not give you access to anything besides the iPhone unlock program which gives you information about contacts and allows sending text messages and placing phone calls. Such discovery couldn’t make Apple happy about its work. The new threat in the “secure” firmware takes all the security options down. They can be ineffective when it comes to protection your personal information and money.
