iPhone 4.1 Security Flaw


Users of iPhone 4.1 software should be aware of a flaw which allows anyone to access your contacts, recent calls, voicemails. The security hole allows access to the phone application even if you have locked the phone with a PIN.

The process is as simple as typing ### in the Emergency call screen and immediatley hitting the lock button. This loads the telephone application without requiring the unlock code. iPhone 4.1 users are advised to be aware of this flaw and to be vigilant until this flaw is fixed.

No date has been announced yet for the iOS4 fix for this issue.
