Recently, a Spanish amateur security researcher, Jose Rodriguez discovered a nasty bug in Apple's iOS 12 that lets anyone bypass iPhone’s passcode and gives physical access to private photos. The Bug also works on Apple’s latest iOS 12.0.1
Prior to this new vulnerability, a similar bug was also found on iOS 12 and that let attackers have access to an iPhone and see all the contacts and photos. However, the bug was fixed by Apple last week in its iOS 12.0.1 update release. And talking about this new bug, it still works perfectly on iOS 12.0.1.
According to Rodriguez, iPhone users are advised to disable access to Siri when your phone is locked to be on the safer side. And to do that, just head to ‘Settings’ and then ‘Touch ID & Passcode’.
This latest bug doesn’t need much of an effort to exploit. With some basic steps, anyone can gain access to your private photos on the phone. Here are the steps you can follow to carry out the passcode bypass process:
