phone and view your photos and contacts list. The person could even load them on to a PC using a USB cord, while bypassing your passcode protection.
Since the second flaw is connected to the first, it is hoped that iOS 6.1.3 will be able to close both openings at once. Apple has acknowledged the flaws but has not mentioned a timeframe for the release of the next update.

if you tilt the phone just so you can see the lines left in the face grease on the screen and get passed the pattern lock. Thats about all I can think of.
