Technology Giant Apple Raises Substantial Privacy Issues

Hackers claim to have broken through new i0S 7 software to access personal details of iPhone users


Port Talbot, Wales -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/04/2013 -- Hackers have claimed security flaws in Apples latest software which enables them to access people’s phone content.

It’s been made apparent that all someone needs to do is to start up the control centre by swiping up from the bottom of the iPhone’s lock screen and open the camera application. Whilst the phone is locked hackers will not be able to view anything when the photo application is opened through it. Having said that the intruders could then launch the clock application from the control centre and hold the iPhones power screen lock button till they see slide to power off button at the top and cancel button at the bottom. Hackers then simply tap on the cancel button and quickly press the iPhones home button twice to start up the multitasking menu.

This then enables them to gain access to the users messages, mail, twitter, facebook and flickr accounts via the sharing menu.

Apple are yet to make a statement on this breach due to contending with two separate glitches relating to the new iOS 7 operating system.
