iOS 7.0.2

  • Passcode Lock

    Available for: iPhone 4 and later

    Impact: A person with physical access to the device may be able to make calls to any number

    Description: A NULL dereference existed in the lock screen which would cause it to restart if the emergency call button was tapped repeatedly. While the lock screen was restarting, the call dialer could not get the lock screen state and assumed the device was unlocked, and so allowed non-emergency numbers to be dialed. This issue was addressed by avoiding the NULL dereference.
