iOS 7 bug gives everyone access to your photos, contact list and more [Video]

Apple’s new iOS 7 software brings a log of great things to the table, but it also apparently brings a few serious security flaws that could expose users. Yesterday we told you about a pretty major oversight from Apple that lets thieves quickly and easily prevent iPhone, iPad and iPod touch owners from using Find my iPhone to locate and recover their devices. Since then, another iOS 7 security flaw has been discovered. A hole exposed by Forbes and then flushed out by the security experts at Lookout allows anyone to bypass PIN or passcode-protected lock screens and send emails, update statuses on social networks or access photos, contacts and more. Apple told AllThingsD that it’s aware of the bug and is working to fix it. In the meantime, a pair of videos are embedded below to show you how easy it is to break past iOS 7′s security and run amok on someone’s device.
