Only a few days after Apple released the much anticipated iOS 7, another security flaw has already been discovered.

This new bug, highlighted in a YouTube video Friday, exploits the emergency call feature on the iPhone to reportedly allow anyone to bypass the phone's passcode lock and make a phone call.

TheBlaze was able to replicate the problem in a few limited tests.

As TheBlaze reported on Friday, a man named Jose Rodriguez found that using another security flaw he could access the iPhone's "control center" if he swiped his finger a certain way.
