Just as the headline says, someone can use your iPhone to call anyone, but it’s not by unlocking your phone. Honestly, if someone gets a hold of your phone do you really care if they use it to call someone? That’s the least of my worries.
Anyways. I am linking to this post from Andy Greenberg because it contains the most wrongheaded and jacktastic quote I have seen in a while, from the person who found the exploit:
“I think this is a part of iOS that they’re [Apple] not paying much attention to,” Daoud says. “They’re more interested in copying Samsung on new things than fixing their bugs.”
Nailed it. Douchebag.
Update: I am hearing from a few people that 7.0.1 actually fixes this, but I have yet to see verification of this.
