iPhone 4s Siri Bypasses Password Security

Date: 2011-10-20 09:01:43

iPhone 4s
Graham Cluley of Sophos exposed a new iPhone vulnerability in a blog post yesterday.

The vulnerability is with the new voice assistant Siri. Siri will respond to any stranger while the phone is locked and bypasses some password security.

Strangers can Compose and send email, compose and send text messages, and change calendar entries.

Fixing the problem is easy by navigating to "Settings/General/Passcode Lock" and changing the Siri setting to OFF.
