Apple has recently updated iOS to version 6.1.3 to fix the lock screen bypass flaw but it seems the issue still exists still. According to nakedsecurity.sophos.com found here: http://nakedsecurity.sophos.com/2013/03/21/ios-6-1-3-passcode-lock-bypass/ The flaw was found by “videosdebarraquito”, who seems to be making a hobby of embarrassing Apple by uncovering lock bypass flaws. In a video he demonstrates that it’s not particularly complicated to avoid the iOS 6.1.3 passcode lock if you have physical access to the device and a widget for removing the SIM card. On the mentioned link above it also shows on how to fix the issue until Apple decides to fix the flawed lock screen.

I have been a Windows Rom Developer (ROMs made include Special K and Doug E Fresh Rom). I have port apps for Windows Phone like Opera Mobile, and HTC Sense for Windows Phone. I no longer do that stuff.

I now focus on analyzing malware and I own my own business fixing computers as well as installing secured networks.

In my spare time I have my own mini network at my house to see the impact as well as analyzing the damaging power the malware causes by using malware samples given to me.

Thanks to MobilityDigest.com, I have been given a great pleasure to write about malware and the impact on mobile devices.

  1. Wow, these guys are lucky hackers don’t primarily focus on their system. They hurry out fixes but clearly don’t consider all the possible threads that can lead to the bug to stay open.
