Samsung Galaxy SIII flaw found

The Samsung Galaxy SIII may have a flaw that allows full access to the device even if the screen has been locked, a report suggests.

According to a report on The Verge, the security of the lock screen on the SIII could be compromised if one clicked the emergency call button, followed by the emergency contacts and home and power buttons in quick succession.

The lock screen remains disabled until the phone is rebooted, the report says.

This bug mirrors a similar one found on Apple's iPhone recently and it is not clear whether the bug affects all Android devices.

Samsung is preparing to release the updated version of its Galaxy S smartphone that has seen sales of over 100 million units since launch, giving Samsung a 31% share of the global smartphone market.
