Forgot your passcode to your phone? No problem
Thanks to Linux and a security flaw in the iPhone OS you can now get into your phone if you forgot your passcode. This happens on non-jailbroken phones as well.
The security flaw was found by security and IT blogger Bernd Marienfeldt. Here is how he was able to gain access.
Basically, he said, plugging an up-to-date, non jail-broken, PIN-protected iPhone (powered off) into a computer running Ubuntu Lucid Lynx will allow the people to see practically all of the user's data — including music, photos, videos, podcasts, voice recordings, Google safe browsing databases, and game contents.
