Lockscreen Security Flaw Found in iOS 7 Beta


Spanish iPhone user Jose Rodriguez, 36, recently uncovered a lockscreen security flaw in Apple's beta version of iOS 7, less than 48 hours after it was first made available to developers (h/t Forbes).

Forbes' Andy Greenberg reports that the bypass method, which Forbes video producer Jonathan Hall says is "super easy to do," gives anyone the ability to access, delete, e-mail, upload or tweet the photos on a device without knowing its passcode.

Rodriguez previously uncovered similar lockscreen flaws in iOS 6.1 in February of 2013, and in iOS 6.1.3 in March of 2013.
