iOS 7 Bugs & Glitches: Users Can Make Calls on Locked iPhone

Another user has found a pesky security bug in iOS 7 housed in the emergency call system for locked iPhones. Forbes reported that Karam Daoud, a 27-year-old Palestinian living in Ramallah, had uncovered this vulnerability.

The video shows how Daoud is able to make international and premium calls by tapping “Emergency” through the lock screen of your phone. Once the menu appears, dial any number and click on the green button multiple times. The familiar black screen with Apple logo should appear and then the call gets made with your lock screen still visible in the background.

Unlike the control panel bug that was discovered on Thursday, there seems to be no immediate fix for this. Following the process above, I tested it out on my 4S and it works. The Forbes writer, Andy Greenberg, noted that it worked on the iPhone 5S as well. Daoud worked as mobile bug tester in the past and immediately contacted Apple to let them know. A representative thanked him for his e-mail and said a patch to fix this error would arrive in a few days.

This is the second malfunction found in the lock screen since iOS 7 was seeded to all iPhone owners this past Wednesday. The control panel flaw was easily repaired with a few quick swipes on privacy settings but this will be more difficult to adjust since the emergency call function is so essential.

This profit will be shown on income potential literature and in some cases
even reported to stockholders and government regulators.
They don’t want to be left behind so they try and keep you from your goals and dreams.
The selling transaction goes on from one layer to the next.

Be sure to provide this or the social worker will come and take away this pet,
too. In this world, the art of pet portraits is gaining more and more popularity.
It’s powered by the sucking air and spins a brush that works to
lift the animal hair off of your furniture.

Mlm can take time and effort to keep, but so can your property.

Do not be fooled into thinking that MLM businesses are simple, quick or efficient ways
to make money; it is the products and services that will make you money, and
if they are too expensive, of a low quality or involve
paying fees for the “privilege” of selling them, you are bound to find
yourself red-faced and wondering how you fell for this type of scheme at all.

Some people refer to these strategies as cult-like because
some MLM companies focus more on finding associates and charging them miscellaneous fees for ‘training’ and ‘starter kits’ than actually selling the products
themselves.
