iOS 12.0.1 Security Issues (O_o)
Yes, here we go again. The Bug:
New iPhone Bug gives you access to your private photos
… The new hack lets anyone who has physical access to your locked iPhone access your photo album, select photos and send them to anyone using Apple messages. .
Since the new hack requires much less effort than the previous one, it leaves an iPhone user vulnerable to a skeptical or distrustful partner, curious college, friend or roommate who can access your iPhone photo album and grab your private images …
The new password-bypass method works on all current iPhone models, including iPhone X and XS devices, running the latest version of the Apple mobile operating system, ie iOS 12 to 12.0 .1 .
Until Apple comes up with a security update, you can temporarily fix the problem by disabling Siri from the lock screen. How to disable Siri:
Go to Settings → Face ID and Password ( Press ID and Password on iPhone by pressing ID) and Disable Siri switch under "Allow access when locked."
( Bolding ).
If you resolved the same error in IOS 12.0, you are already confident.
The general consensus at this point is that it is uncertain to leave Siri when the screen of an iOS device is locked. Therefore, we may want to leave Siri disabled when locked. This means we must unlock the device first and then access Siri. As always, it is practical versus security . Choose, find your balance.
