iOS7 Security issues give access to your photos and more

E-Crime Expert brings once again to your attention a security issue, thanks to Jose Rodriguez, from Canary Islands which has found this iOS7 Security glitch that gives access to your photos, and enables the sharing of them via Twitter, Mail, Flickr, Message.

The following demo, pictures and testing is done entirely by E-Crime Expert (Dan Manolescu) on one of our devices. This security issues apply to any Apple device (iPhone, Ipad) that runs on iOS7.

How it works:

From the locked screen menu (Fig.1), pull the “Control center” tab up (Fig.2) and click the “Clock” pictogram (Fig.3)
