One of the most appealing features of the new iPhone 4S is the Siri functionality included in the device, which allows users to input lots of cool voice commands. Sadly, there's a downside to the Siri that might leave your iPhone 4S exposed.
There's a fix though, that's the important thing. :)
smh it should have been locked from the get.
Interesting exploit. Sure there will be an update soon though.
Hm, you would think so. I want to be able to use Siri to its full potential without worrying someone is going to hi-jack my phone.
OMG, this seems to be a siri-ous problem. Good thing I have Android.
Same No problems here
I guard my phone like it's my child. Nobody gets their hands on it besides me. Not worried about this in the least.
do you sleep on trains or any form on public transportation? ever heard of pick pockets? anything can happen I hope you at least have a lock screen with security enabled
sure because pick-pockets are looking to use Siri to damage my social life instead of you know....stealing my phone...
I'm a light sleeper. If anyone approaches me I open my eyes and frighten them off with my piercing death gaze. I actually live in Tucson where we have no public transportation. When I did live in Manhattan and rode the subway I never, in all my years living there, had anything stolen from my person. This only happens to tourists. I can't stand it when publishers utilize the media to provoke fear, especially when it's something as absurd as this. The 4S is a terrific little device. Go out and buy one now.
@ onilink im sure it would be a bonus damaging your social life. free phone + humiliation. you wouldnt be surprised with what people get off on.
Clearly you live in Teletubby world.
If someone you don't know has your iphone (or any other smartphone), you have bigger problems than having your appointments viewed or changed...
Should be locked when you start it.
Doesn't seem like that big of a deal to me. The worst a person can do is send a tasteless message to ONE person in your contacts. Anyway, if you try to do anything else while your phone is locked, Siri will ask you to unlock the phone before preceding.
Wow they can try and damage my social life oh no!!! Lol all of you who are getting serious about this get the heck out please. I mean social life really? They cant still your credit card or anything like that so untill they can people can stop being dumb and getting all scared.fear mongerers. You sound like the republic party right now.
