A new security bug has been found in iOS 4.1 that lets you bypass an iPhone's passcode lock to make calls and access contact information.

Instructions to Reproduce:
● Lock your iPhone using a passcode
● Press Emergency Call
● Dial a non existant number #946494
● Immediately press the Power button as it begins making the call

After performing these steps the contacts application will open giving you access to the entire address book, recent call history, and voicemail of the person's iPhone.

You can also make calls and send emails.

Apple has reportedly been notified of the security bug already.
