iPad 2 Smart Cover Security Flaw Found (video)

The guys over at 9 to 5 Mac have found a security flaw on the iPad 2, when it is being used with Apple’s Smart Cover, and basically the security flaw will let you unlock the iPad using just the Apple smart cover, even if the passcode lock is on.

The security flaw doesn’t give full access to everything on your iPad, but say you were last in Safari or Contacts, when you closed your iPad, the hack would allow access to the last app you were in, as you will see in the video below.

    This video isn’t credible, at all. He can’t open safari the first time. But right before he tries to access it the second time, the video cuts. So there may be a flaw, but I don’t think it’s accurately represented here.
