iOS security flaw: Are you Sirious?

A new security breach has been discovered in iOS 7.1, allowing hackers to access contact lists without having to unlock the actual iPhone device.

That’s the claim coming from part-time Egyptian security researcher Sherif Hashim, who says the flaw can be exploited through Siri Voice Assistant.
