Gizmodo has uncovered a security flaw within the 2.02 software for the Apple iPhone that allows people to access a locked iPhone with just three taps giving them access to private contacts and emails.

According to reports on News.com, a spokeswoman for Apple said that the company was aware of the problem and was readying a software update to fix it. In the meantime, she recommended users set the iPhone’s “Home” button to open up the phone’s iPod music collection rather than its “Favorites” menu.

The security flaw is the latest in a line of complaints from iPhone users who have been unhappy with everything from the phone’s camera to its slow 3G speeds.
