Another iOS 7 Exploit Allows Anyone to Make Calls from Locked iPhones
Another security flaw has been discovered in Apple’s iOS 7, this time exploiting a bug in the emergency calling system that allows anyone to bypass an iPhone’s passcode lock to make a phone call. The bug found by Karam Daoud and reported by Fortune with many people claiming to have replicated the process on various iPhones running iOS 7.
This recent discovery comes after a separate issue that was also recently uncovered; an exploit found in Command Center to bypass iOS 7’s lock screen security protection. The Command Center issue is easily rectified by turning off the feature’s lock screen access in the Settings app. Unfortunately there is no quick fix for the newly discovered emergency call exploit.
Users interested in seeing the bug in action can watch the video below:
The latest exploit has been sent to Apple already, with the company likely to issue a patch for the exploit in its next software update.

Really not too worried about this as a concern. Amazing how much time people have on their hands to find these "problems".

It's sad that new owners have to do apple's beta testing for them.

I really think Apple should start doing these kind of tests on their own. It seems like all people do is try a bunch of random things for a few hours until they find something that confuses the OS to get it to bypass. Weird.

The only reason all these bugs exist now that didn't during the betas are because apple purposefully put them in. The want to see if people will push a jailbreak and then right after patch it with the working iOS 7. I have a hundred bugs that I never had on iOS 7 betas. They are just a bunch of d******** if you ask me. They wouldn't be around if it weren't for the jailbreak community and they just keep trying to push it away. They are r*******.

Blows. Well hopefully this doesn't jeopardize a jailbreak for iOS 7 and for people getting iPhones when the jailbreak comes.

Wait a minute, I thought it was December 2012 all over again. Cos the same unimportant BULL-SHI'ITE happen then too.

Some of you need to get a grip on reality. JBers account for about 2-3% of all iDevices sold. Why would apple put so much time and effort into such a small group. You people act like 80% of devices are JBroken and apple is constantly having teams of personnel figure out ways to stop us. It would be very easy to stop us, as we are not that secretive of a group.
