The iOS 7 lock-screen security bug is similar to iOS 6 like lock-screen bugs that include a series of steps to get your hands on locked data without entering the passcode on your iPhone / iPad / iPod touch.
Apple has already confirmed media outlet that they are working on the fix, and users will soon see an update in the form of iOS 7.0.1 and iOS 7.0.2 roll out.
