Apple iOS Passcode Lock security bypass
|appleios-passcodelock-security-bypass (59633)||Medium Risk|
Apple iOS could allow a remote attacker to bypass security restrictions, caused by an error in Passcode Lock. If the device is unlocked in response to an alert and Remote Lock operations are handled through MobileMe, a local attacker could exploit this vulnerability using unknown attack vectors to bypass passcode requirements to gain unauthorized access to the device.
