Samsung Galaxy Note 2 can be accessed even if locked?

Samsung Galaxy Note 2 can be accessed even if locked?
Remember the flaw in the new iOS update 6.1 which was released just weeks earlier.  A similar flaw has been detected in the Samsung Galaxy Note 2.  As with the iOS flaw, this defect can be accessed with skillful hand synchronisation to get to a few of the Apps in Note 2.

The flaw allows users and would be hackers can get past the Galaxy Note 2's lock screen, if their fingers are fast enough.

The flaw which was first discovered by Terence Eden allows users to access certain apps and widgets with few artistic kind of taps from the lock screen. Somewhat tricky to accomplish, it requires the user to press the "Emergency Call" icon, then the ICE (in case of emergency) button, and then hold down the home button. With success, one could tap a direct-dial widget or select applications.

Not all apps will open in this manner for example the video shows that Google Play does not respond. 

The Samsung has not yet commented on this flaw but with CNET reporting it, there will be a update to fix this flaw sooner or later.
