iPhone 5 passcode security compromised

This could easily be a 'how to hack your iPhone 5' post.

In the Video you can see an exploit of a bug in the iOS 6.1 operating system that enables the user to gain access to the phone's contacts, text messages, data library and all the other features. 

The trick involves a call to the International distress number and a tapping of the power button of the phone. You can see the detailed procedure in the video above.

According to Apple sources, the company is aware of the bug and will deliver a patch on the next update resolving this issue. So, if you are a user that has not yet updated the operating system to iOS 6.1 it would be better for you to wait until the fix for this issue has been released. On the other hand, if you have already installed iOS 6.1 then it would be a good idea to protect your phone from 'malevolent hands'
