Apple Releases iOS 7.0.2 To Fix a pair of Screen Security Bugs

Photo-Sep-26-1-04-53-PM

Apple has announced the release of iOS 7.0.2 for iOS devices with a fix for the lock screen bypass vulnerability. The issues allowed users to jump past lock screen passcodes to gain access to photos and other social sharing options and one other issue that allowed users to calls to any number from the Emergency Call screen. This patch also adds back a Greek keyboard option for entering passcodes.

The lock screen bypass method involved sliding up Control Center, tapping on the timer button and holding down the power button until the cancel option came up. You would then tap on the cancel button and double-tap the home button. This gave you access to the multitasking UI. While most apps were locked out, the Camera option was accessible, allowing access to photos and sharing.

Unlike the iOS 7.0.1 update (which applied only to the new iPhone 5C and 5S), the 7.0.2 update is available to all devices that support iOS 7. That list includes the iPhones 4, 4S, 5, 5C, and 5S; the iPad 2, iPad mini, and both Retina iPads; and the fifth-generation iPod touch. The update can now be downloaded over-the-air or applied via iTunes.

To update just Go to  Settings>General>Software Update menu.
