Droid X and Droid 2: New Security Flaw on Android 2.2 Froyo

We have some important news if you are a Motorola Droid X or Droid 2 owner, as it has been confirmed over the weekend that a new security flaw has been found within the handset, possibly linked to the BLUR interface.

As reported from BGR, it has been revealed that users can still make voice calls on their handset, even though the device is supposed to be locked.

The lock screen can be easily bypassed by issuing a voice command on your handset on the lock screen. For example, if you say ‘call home’ whilst being locked, it will still go through with the call command and you’ll then be able to make calls as normal.

Obviously this is a problem which wasn’t part of the script, and it’s been confirmed on both the Motorola Droid 2 and Droid X smartphones – the original Droid is unaffected. We haven’t heard from Motorola yet regarding this issue, but we’ll let you know when a fix is on the way.

Check out a quick video showing the problem below. Try it out on your Droid 2 or Droid X for yourself and let us know your thoughts on this.
