New iPhone 4S has security issue

Just as Apple breaks a record by selling four million iPhone 4S devices in a weekend, there’s news of a security flaw.

Even when you’ve assigned a passcode to lock your phone, anyone could still access practically anything with the new voice command personal assistant called Siri.

By activating Siri, you can access the calendar, contacts, addresses, phone numbers, send a text message and emails too.

If youu’re driving and you need to respond to a quick text with your voice, you only have to hit one button rather than unlock the phone altogether.

But if you want to protect your data, there’s a quick fix.

All you have to do is get to your general settings, the passcode lock settings, then just turn off that Siri option.

That’s it, just turn it off. Apple did not make that the default setting.
