Hello Community,


I found out a serious security-vulnerability in iOS 5. You can unlock the iPhone without having to enter a passcode by using the camera-shortcut in the lockscreen. Here´s the way to reproduce the problem:


  1. Make sure the iPhone is secured with an password/passcode and is locked
  2. Doubletap the homebutton and use the camera-shortcut
  3. Swipe to the right to bring up the recently taken photos
  4. Press the homebutton
  5. You now should be taken directly to the homescreen without having to enter the passcode


I can`t repreoduce the problem every time I try it, but it works in about 6/10 cases. I´m using the iPhone 4S w. iOS5


I hope you`ll read this and report it to apple.



iPhone 4S, iOS 5
