The problem was highlighted in a YouTube video by Jose Rodriguez where he demonstrated that, with a series of taps, the lockscreen could be bypassed allowing anyone access to the data on the device.  As well as this, the new update brings back the option of a Greek keyboard for entering the lockscreen passcode
