It is very easy on the iPad to accidentally delete a photo because when the bin symbol is touched (deliberately or as often happens not deliberately), the next thing you see is two buttons: 1 delete (red), 2cancel, and if you do have the misfortune to swipe or touch the wrong one, you get no second chance at all.

We all promise to be careful when using iPad or other iOS devices or other mobile devices, , but you will find as you age that you will at least on one or two occasions do something accidentally, in a hurry maybe or perhaps with your mind on a poor, mother father or child. One protection could be an "are you sure" button enabled/disabled in settings or another protection could be the original trash can file.

iOS 7.1.1 Newest Flaw – Attackers Can Skip the Lockscreen to Text or Call Contact

It exposed that newest iOS 7.1.1 lets anyone to access iPhone without passcode, only by asking Siri to Call, Send Messages, Email and so on.

The exploit was a discovered by Sherif Hashim, an Egyption neurosurgeon, and works on devices running iOS version 7.1.1 with the Siri service available from the lock screen. By activating Siri and giving her instructions to make a call or send a text, followed by inputting a single letter and selecting "other" from the available options, users can then gain access to the full contents of the device's content list as well as make calls and send or read texts and emails.

iOS 7.1.1 flaw/vulnerability

Risks are Big

The risks are pretty big, considering that a person’s contacts list is one of the most personal forms of data residing on a mobile phone.

Another security issue in iOS 7.1.1 does with email attachments. Discovered by security researcher Andreas Kurtz, the issue at heart is that Mail.app lacks a layer of protection for email messages attachments, one that Apple claims to offer.

How to Avoid the Attack by Siri Flaw

However, you have a choice to avoid this issue on your iPhone, that is, to disable the option to have Siri accessible from the lock screen.

In some cases, the security of the OS has been so weak that people were able to access photos, emails, and even text messages.

This is not the first time Apple has to deal with a passcode lock flaw. And although Apple prides itself on taking security matters very seriously, the company has always been slow to address such vulnerabilities both on mobile and on desktop platforms.

With almost every new iOS release, hackers and amateurs alike have found ways to trick the phone into thinking that the user has entered the passcode and gain access to its contents.

Apple Will Deal with the Issue Seriously, Perhaps in iOS 7.1.2

Every time there exposed a security problem of iOS, Apple will resolve it as quickly as possible. For example, the aforementioned Mail.app flaw was reported to the Mac maker about a month ago, and the company has yet to issue a patch.

Similarly, on iOS whenever someone finds and reports a security hole, Apple takes its time in developing a patch. Although it is understandable that it takes time to get things right, working up an update for a couple of bugs shouldn’t be such an ordeal.

Apple will need to patch this bug in a future iOS update, perhaps in iOS 7.1.2 which is said to be launched within this month. So we should expect the exploit to be patched out in the very near future.


Though risks come out, we cannot ignore and disclaim the capability and productivity of Apple developers. We benefit more goods than risks from iOS devices – iPhone, iPad, iPod. Wait for the patching of this bug.
