Another iOS 7 lockscreen bypass has surfaced.

This one lets you make calls anywhere in the world for free.

OK, not really “for free.”

You may not have to pay, but someone does, and that person is the owner, who probably assumed that the “lock” on the phone actually did – how can I put this without sounding tautological? – lock the phone part of the phone.

A keen iOS 7 early adopter from Ramallah in the West Bank, Karam Daoud, now apparently a business development guy but who worked in bug testing in the mobile space in a previous life, found the flaw.
