AT&T Galaxy S2 Security Hole?
BGR.com has discovered a security flaw in the AT&T version of the Galaxy S2 that's on track to launch in AT&T retails stores tomorrow. The flaw allows users to bypass the lock screen without using the unlock pattern or PIN to enter a phone. I'm sure this definitely is not the media attention Samsung was hoping for with the release of their flagship device. Thoughts?
Samsung and AT&T are investigating a permanent solution. In the meantime, owners of the Galaxy S II can remedy the situation by re-setting their time-out screen to the “immediately” setting. This is done by going to the Settings ->Location and Security->Screen unlock settings->Timeout->Immediately.
