Yet another convoluted lock screen bypass for Apple to patch
As long as Lock Screen is tasked to provide both security and convenience, we're going to continue to find cases where the former latter compromises the former. That it's becoming increasingly complex and almost arcane to find the compromises is s a good thing. Case in point, the latest one found on iOS 12 for devices up to and including iPhone X and iPhone X Max.
There's a similar one for camera roll. Since an attacker would need physical access to a device to even begin to attempt to trigger the exploit, and since disabling Siri on the Lock screen prevents it completely, there's nothing for most people to worry about right now. We just need to wait for Apple to include the fix in the next update, as always.
