Vulnerability: Tricked out Android Lock Screen

The lock screen is one of the favorite targets of hackers, he denied but unauthorized views of important personal data. Weaknesses existed in the past from Android and ios often. The latest gap goes back to the account of the Google operating system and affects almost every current device according to the message. Our site has checked the message and can entwarnen: the trick to prise off the lock screen, but does not work for any device.

Jyoti copy-& paste

To cause the crash to the lock screen and then to gain unrestricted access to your Android Smartphone, there’s not much: the Android must be locked with a password (not PIN or wiping pattern). The instructions of the IT security expert John Gordon requires only three steps. First, you open the emergency in the locked Smartphone. There you type a long string of numbers, copied them, inserts it in the same window and copied the now double sequence, insert it again. You repeat this until the copied sequence is as long and can no longer be copied. Then it inserts this number sequence in the password field until it no longer is. That overloaded the lock screen so that it crashes at worst and Android unprotected presents itself. A scandal! Gordon that demonstrated an older software of Google nexus 5.

Overview: the best smartphones

100 mobile phones, Samsung, Apple, HTC, LG & co.

Which are affected?

Here’s the soothing reply: the least smartphones let thus tricking themselves. Our site tried the trick with an HTC one (M9) and a Sony Xperia Z3 out. The one allows even no copy & paste to the blocked State and is therefore safe. The Sony actually crashed and froze, was again locked. Here, it would be possible to reach with more sophisticated means to the destination. The Samsung S6 is also immune from attack and prohibits the copying and pasting to the blocked State. Because LG has updated his LG G3 yet on the latest Android 5.0, any attempt is doomed to fail. The reason: The trick works only on Android 5.0 to 5.1, the gap is also already done with version 5.1.1. Even Motorola (MOTO X), ZTE (blade V6) and WIKO (Highway pure 4 G) were not to cheat using this method. It has taken but one: the Alcatel Idol 3 crashed in the described manner and then became accessible to prying eyes. Workaround is simple: change the password in a slightly longer PIN and the haunting is over.
