A Security Bug Has Been Discovered In Apple's iOS 7
It looks like the first bug of iOS 7 has been uncovered. Unfortunately, it’s one that has to do with security, according to Engadget. The bug allows someone to bypass a passcode-protected lockscreen. As a result, the user can gain access to the device’s Photos app, and hijack email and social networking information. As Engadget explains:
Essentially, you access the alarm clock through Control Center, make your way into the multitasking menu and head into the camera app from there.Take a look: Hopefully, Apple will fix this bug sooner rather than later. When they do, we'll certainly let you know. Until that time, you may want to disable the ability to launch Control Center from the lockscreen. This can be performed in the Settings app.
