Technology consultant Ade Barkah has uncovered a vulnerability in iOS 5 that can enable photos to be viewed on a locked iPhone.

"As part of the iOS 5 upgrade, users get immediate access to the camera even if the device is locked with a passcode," writes ZDNet's Ryan Naraine. "This feature blocks access to the entire photo album and only allows the user to see photos taken from the current (locked) session."

"However, Barkah found that if he rolled back the clock settings on an iOS device, the entire photo album became visible," Naraine writes.
