Hi folks! So right in the middle of legal battles for Samsung and the release of the new Galaxy S II, Samsung gets another hit while they’re down. There’s apparently a security hole, and a big one at that.

BGR found the hole and apparently it has to do with the lock screen. The hole allows a user to bypass the lock screen on Android without having to enter the pattern.
