Looks like there’s been a glitch in Apple’s iOS 4.1 firmware, the relatively important security flaw too. The glitch allows users to hack their way through and bypass the lock screen on the iPhone in which you are required to enter a passcode, the result is that you won’t need to know the passcode to reach the iPhone phone app and access some degree of private data.
If you thought your iPhone 3GS’ hardware encryption was safe, you better think again. Yes while many of us (including myself) have great faith and trust in Apple and their OS developers, what we’ve found on YouTube completely shatters our minds on the definition of safe security. The quick video below shows you how vulnerable the iPhone can be at times when Apple tells you that there is nothing to be worried about. Removing the passcode PIN and backup encryption from the iPhone is actually easy-peasy!
