Security flaw in the iPhone exposes private data

Reuters/New York Times, September 2, 2008

A security flaw in Apple Inc's iPhone allows unauthorized users to gain easy access to private contacts and e-mails even when the device is locked. The technology blog Gizmodo and an online forum run by the Mac Rumors site showed that it took only three taps to gain access to locked iPhones. An Apple spokeswoman said in an e-mail that Apple was aware of the problem and was readying a software update to fix it.
