    Exclamation Major Security Flaw in 2.0.1 and 2.0.2!!
    Hello everyone! I just found this on a few websites and I wanted to share it with you guys! I don't take the credit for the find, just wanted to pass it along!! I tried it and it works!!

    2.0.1 and 2.0.2 gives almost full access to the iPhone even while under password protection...

    Steps to Reproduce

    Set iPhone to use passcode lock, have contacts marked as Favorites with links, phone numbers, addresses, etc in address book entry.

    Tap "Emergency Call" keypad from passcode entry screen.

    Double-tap home button.

    Tap blue arrow next to contact's name. You now have full access to applications such as Safari, complete Contacts list, SMS, Maps, "full" Phone access, and Mail by accessing various entries on the Favorite's page, i.e. tapping their home page brings up a full, unrestricted Safari.


    PS: The news is also on iClarified website!! http://<a href="http://forums.macrum...?enid=1743</a>

    Nice find.

    It will no doubt be fixed with next update.

    The 64 million dolar question is will they ever fix 3 reception?
