iOS 7 Bug Lets You Call Any Number From the Lock Screen

Thanks; CHELSEA STARK1 DAY AGO http://on.mash.to/15fIMz5
A flaw in Apple’s iOS 7 lock screen allows users to call any number
from their iPhone’s emergency-call feature. Forbes revealed the bug
after reporter Andy Greenberg was sent a video of a locked iPhone
running iOS 7. SEE ALSO: 9 Apps Draining Your Phone’s Battery The
bug can be activated by hitting the “Emergency” button on the
iPhone’s lock screen. Dial any number, then rapidly hit the green
call button until you see the Apple logo screen — the same screen
that comes up when the phone is turned on. The phone will begin to
ring, and your call should connect. Mashable was able to replicate
this on two different iPhone 5 models running iOS 7. The bug was
not repeatable on an iPhone 5S, which is running iOS 7.0.1 (what
the phone is shipped with). We’ve reached out to Apple, and will
update this story with comment on a security update. Is your iPhone
experiencing problems with this iOS 7 bug? Tell us in the comments,
