iOS 6.1.2 is said to not fix the password exploit found last week which allows for PIN / password locks to be bypassed by completing a combination of button presses and actions. Apple did say last week that the exploit would be patched in a future update, although it’s been confirmed that it’s still present. iOS 6.1.2 also does not patch the evasi0n jailbreak exploit.
