Another method has been found to bypass the iPhone lock screen passcode in iOS 6.1 by Vulnerability Laboratory.

This exploit makes the screen go black and allows an attacker to plug the device into the computer via USB and access user's data without entering the passcode.

"The vulnerability is located in the main login module of the mobile iOS device (iPhone or iPad) when processing to use the screenshot function in combination with the emergency call and power (standby) button. The vulnerability allows the local attacker to bypass the code lock in iTunes and via USB when a black screen bug occurs," Mejri wrote. "The vulnerability can be exploited by local attackers with physical device access without privileged iOS account or required user interaction. Successful exploitation of the vulnerability results in unauthorized device access and information disclosure."

Apple has released iOS 6.1.3 beta 2 to developers which includes a fix for the first lock screen bug. It's likely that the new bug will also be addressed when iOS 6.1.3 is released.

Ok children of the night, here is the lesson of the day, don't password your devices numerically. Use the Alphabet Passcode and this will not happen to you. This vulnerability can only happen if you use the numerical generic Passcode sequence.. And also make sure you use Alphabet & Numeric / Upper & Lowercase mixed 16 digit Passcode. ---- Numeric Passcode is like 0.99c store cheap locks and Alphabet or Alphanumeric Passcode is like Police Locks with pit bulls on the other side.... Get my drift??
