Just after releasing the iOS 7, the tech giant finds itself in an embarrassing situation, caused by the major security issues

Apple states that it has been working to fix a major security issue, found on its recently released iOS7.

Just after Apple released the iOS 7, the hackers put the giant company in an embarrassing situation, proving  that the new version contains major security issues, by bypassing the lock screen and obtaining access to personal data.

The bug, is found to exploit the iPhone 4S and 5, provides access to user’s personal data comprises with email, photos, Facebook, Twitter and Flicker, via the Control Center function, which  allows the users to get access to important functions of the iPhone, such as: WiFi, Bluetooth and Airplane mode, as well as other typical settings, like the camera, calculator and alarm.

It has been found that a hacker can get access to the multitasking manager via the alarm screen, enabling the intruder to bypass the screen lock. Moreover, it enables the hackers to get into the user’s different data account. Thus, the intruder can modify, even remove the user’s useful information.

However, Apple is found very serious handling the issue. An Apple spokesman has informed The Guardian that the company is taking the issue very seriously and will fix it in a future software update.

The users are advised to disable the Control Center feature in order to get their iPhones protected.
