Terrence Eden just discovered a new hack that allows to unlock the Samsung Galaxy S3 skipping the device lock screen. While this requires the use of a combination of commands, a user with enough time can even get to install an application.

The method makes use of an exploit that allows us to access the device’s home screen for a moment after making an emergency call, which in repeated attempts allows interaction with the device as if we were an authorized user.

Samsung has promised to release a patch that fixes the vulnerability in the software, but so far the only way to fix it is to install a custom ROM.
