Android 2.0.1 security flaw allows bypass of DROID screen lock

January 11th, 2010 at 9:52 PM

Does your phone have security flaws? DROID does. Sorry, we couldn’t resist. It looks like a flaw found in the Android 2.0.1 code will allow a user to bypass the lock screen on your beloved Motorola DROID. Now, someone can’t just walk over to your DROID and pop the lock; there is one, fairly large, prerequisite that needs to be fulfilled… your phone needs to be ringing. While your DROID is locked and ringing, pressing the “back” key will cause your DROID to present you with the home screen, and from there, you have full access to the phone. Google has stated, “We are aware of the issue and we’re working to deliver a fix to Motorola DROIDs shortly.”
