Apple fixing iOS 6.1 security flaw
MANILA, Philippines - Apple acknowledged reports of a security flaw in iPhones using iOS 6.1, saying it is working on resolving the issue.
The security flaw in iOS 6.1 allows users to get past the password lock on iPhones, allowing users access to phone apps, as well as the viewing and modification of contacts, voicemail checking, and photograph browsing on the phone.
The Wall Street Journal adds an acknowledgement from Apple spokeswoman Trudy Miller, who said the company was "aware of this issue, and will deliver a fix in a future software update." - Rappler.com
