Apple iOS 9.0.2 Update Patches Lock Screen Bypass Exploit

Apple has rolled out the second minor iteration of its newest mobile operating system iOS 9, which fixes the iOS lockscreen vulnerability.
The widely publicized LockScreen bug allowed anyone with physical access to your iOS device running iOS 9.0 or iOS 9.0.1 to access all the contacts and photos without unlocking the device.

 

iOS 9.0.2

  • Lock Screen

    Available for: iPhone 4s and later, iPod touch (5th generation) and later, iPad 2 and later

    Impact: A person with physical access to an iOS device may be able to access photos and contacts from the lock screen

    Description: A lock screen issue allowed access to photos and contacts on a locked device. This issue was addressed by restricting options offered on a locked device.

    CVE-ID

    CVE-2015-5923

Last week, iPhone user Jose Rodriguez published a “dead simple” method to bypass lock screen of the devices running iOS 9 and iOS 9.0.1.
Using the benevolent nature of Apple’s personal assistant Siri, anyone with physical access to the device could gain access through the lock screen. However, Rodriguez confirmed the flaw was fixed in iOS 9.0.2.

If you haven’t updated your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch devices to iOS 9.0.2 yet, you can download the update right by going to Settings –> General –> Software Update on your iOS device and tapping on the ‘Download and Install‘ button.
