This loop hole provides the user access to the contact lists, voicemails and photos. The writer of Threatpost.com says; “The exploit involves manipulating the phone’s screenshot function, its emergency call function and its power button,” He further says that “users have the access to make an emergency call on the phone and then cancel it while toggling the power on and off to get temporary access to the phone.”
