Apple fixes latest lock-screen security bug with iOS 7.0.2

iOS 7.0.2

Apple has started to roll out iOS 7.0.2 today to fix a lock screen security flaw. The issue was discovered just a day after Apple release iOS 7 to the public earlier this month. Apple says iOS 7.0.2 should address an issue where users could bypass an iPhone lock screen to gain access to photos, email, text messages, Facebook, Flickr, and Twitter accounts. It appears iOS 7.0.2 is a basic security patch, with Apple noting it also includes a Greek keyboard option for passcode entry.
