iPhone security flaw

On an iPhone 4 running iOS 4.1 if you tap the “Emergency Call” button, then enter three pound signs, hit the green call button and immediately press the Lock button you gain access to the Phone app.

Well, what’s so bad about this? The Phone app includes your contacts, your voice mail and call history. Some people probably don’t think this is a large issue and it may not be. But with iPhones becoming more prevalent in the business world your contacts can include a lot of people you may not want someone else seeing. Especially in Sales where your contacts are your livelihood.

So if you have an iPhone 4 with iOS 4.1 you may not want to leave it laying around, not that you would in the first place.
