This iReport is part of an assignment:
Android SMS Security Bypass Vulnerability
It has come to my attention during a personal research project that the Android Operating System has a serious vulnerability, allowing the bypass of the screen lock, normally protected with a password, PIN, or even bio-metrics on certain phones.
The actual exploit is posted on my personal blog, I urge CNN to post this as soon as possible to minimize the security outbreak that such a vulnerability could cause.
The post describing how to exploit this vulnerability is described at the following link: http://www.montuori.net/android-sms-lock-screen-bypass-vulnerability/
