Lockscreen Venerability Found In Samsung’s Galaxy S III and Note II Handset

It’s seems as though the iPhone isn’t the only smartphone to be effected by the lockscreen bug on the market, after it was discovered yesterday that both the Samsung Galaxy Note II and the Galaxy S III also had lockscreen vulnerabilities that would allow a user to access the phones entire homescreen, without the need for a passcode.

The process is extremely simply, allowing anyone to follow a simple process to bypass a phones pattern, pin or any other lock method, confirmed by ZDNet, the bug seems to be one only available on Samsung handsets and not with the Android OS.

However they did find this method quite tricky to perform, and didn’t work every time they tried it.
