BGR found a security flaw in AT&T’s Samsung Galaxy S II lockscreen unlock pattern feature which makes it futile letting anyone easily by-pass it.

A by-pass is successful after the device is powered on ONLY after the owner of the phone has been successfully unlocked using the proper pattern at least one time. This flaw is not  reported to Sprint’s Epic Touch 4G or T-Mobile variant nor to the original Galaxy S II. If you own one of these variants you should test this security flaw and see its by-passable or not, just in case.
