Apple has released iOS 7.0.1 and 7.0.2 to fix these issues but, unfortunately, as soon as they fix one, another one rears up, including a second lock screen security problem.  To fix this, and other things, iOS 7.0.3 has now been released.

iOS 7.0.3 has been released to fix the latest lock screen problem. It’s also gone some way to fixing the latest iMessage issue although there could be a much larger reason for its release.  In recent weeks we have seen quite a bit of news from evad3rs regarding the jailbreak and, as a result, the jailbreak developers have put out a warning.
