After a first bug was revealed in the iOS 7 lokscreen, a new bug was discovered that allows anyone to make calls from a locked iPhone, including international calls and calls to premium numbers.

On Friday, Karam Daoud, a 27-year old Palestinian living in the West Bank city of Ramallah, sent me the video above, showing how he’s able to make a call to any number from a locked iPhone running iOS 7 by exploiting a vulnerability in its emergency calling function. The trick includes international calls and calls to premium numbers, is simple enough that any phone thief could easily take advantage of it, and unlike the first bug revealed in the iOS 7 lockscreen Thursday, there doesn’t seem to be any immediate fix for users.
