Tareq from iPhoneIslam demonstrated an interesting security flaw in iPhones running iOS 5. The flaw was discovered by Safwan Saba and it allows you to access the address book, make phone calls and possibly send emails and messages in a locked iPhone. A similar flaw existed in iOS 4.1 and this flaw is a bit tricky to implement. As demonstrated in the following video:
You need to make a missed a call on the target phone then try to eject and insert the SIM card while trying to call back, eventually the “Phone” app will be unlocked.
