How to “invade” a passcode-locked iPhone

A new security bug has been found in iOS 4.1 that allows anyone to bypass an iPhone’s passcode lock to make unauthorized calls, emails and even access AND compromise your list of contacts.
Here are the steps to reproduce it on YOUR iPhone:
● Lock your iPhone using a passcode
● Press Emergency Call
● Dial a non existant number #946494
● Immediately press the Power button as it begins making the call
After performing these steps the contacts application will open giving you access to the entire address book, recent call history, and voicemail of the person’s iPhone. You can also make calls and send emails.
Now, go ahead and try it out on someone else’s iPhone!
