iPhone "Require Passcode" is not secure

Posted on Gizmodo:

First, password protect your phone and lock it. Then slide to unlock and do this:

  1. Tap emergency call.
  2. Double tap the home button.

Misleading headline to the Gizmodo story (this bug doesn’t allow access to all your data), but I’d consider Mail and SMS history to be among the most sensitive data on my phone. Major security gaffe on Apple’s part.
