Submission + - Samsung Lock Screen Bug Allows Full Access (seclists.org)

wbav writes: "So as Sean McMillan notes, there is a bug in Samsung's lock screen for Android. This flaw allows access to the entire device without any security. It affects products like the Galaxy S3 and the Note 2 using Jellybean.

While Lookout claims to have a fix, this submitter found it was possible to bypass that fix easily as well.

This looks especially bad since these devices are part of Samsung's SAFE program."
