Galaxy Note 2 Bug Allows People To Bypass Your Lock Screen Code, Just Like The iPhone

If you Android users were feeling left out by all the lock screen bugs in iOS 6, you’re in luck: one tweaker has found a similar vulnerability on the Galaxy Note 2.

All an “attacker” would need to do is press a certain combination of buttons to get the home screen to flash. It’s quick, but enough time for someone to launch an app and start looking through your stuff. Samsung has yet to acknowledge the vulnerability, but a fix will presumably be found eventually.

it’s likely that once they’ll do, they’ll start working on a fix. Check out the video above for a demonstration.
