iOS 12 Has A Passcode Vulnerability That Exposes Contacts And Photos…. If You Can Execute It

This isn’t the first time that iOS has had a passcode vulnerability. But this one is kind of interesting. Assuming that you have physical access to a iPhone running iOS 12, an attacker could get access photos and contact details on a locked iPhone. Here’s the video:

The vulnerability exists in all iPhones and is even in the latest iOS 12.1 beta that is out there. Thus this is a problem that hasn’t been fixed yet. And as you can tell from the video, it’s not easy to execute. Thus that reduces the chance of it being exploited widely. Still, you should take precautions by disabling Siri at the lock screen. Hopefully Apple fixes this soon.
