The iPhone 4S has a number of security flaws, due to the popular and newly introduced voice recognition driven digital assistant Siri.
The most glaring error it would seem, is the ability for anyone to be able to use Siri to make calls and so forth that picks up the device, even if it’s locked with a passcode.

On a locked phone, anyone can pick it up, press the home button down to launch Siri and voila, in effect they have full control of the device. That was an early established vulnerability with Apple’s shiny new smartphone. Researchers at Trend Micro have also found that an attacker who has somehow managed to obtain and load a self-signed Apple certificate could intercept calls via Siri.
