No problem here on 2.0.1! I don't use a favorites list. I just make up another list for my best friends.

This does not give you FULL access as this post suggests. Depending on which contacts are in your favorites and what types of info is stored in them you can gain access to Mail, Safari, SMS and Maps. You are not able, as far as I could tell, to get to the actual Home screen. This is not quite FULL access but still not good. Also one thing to note is that this was intended to be a feature and is not an overlooked security flaw. That said it indeed does allow free access to much of your personal information so is bad.

It depends on the settings of the HOME button;-). Set the HOME button to "ipod" and your data are safe. not the music:-))).

Security Risk in 2.0.2 can be found in 2.0.1 as well. I have a 2G unlocked and jailbroken iPhone running 2.0.1. After reading about the threat I tried it out on my phone and found it worked exactly the same way as described. Thank you for pointing this out.
