Apple users, listen up - the latest version of Apple's iOS 7 software isn't encrypting mail attachments, leaving you vulnerable to hackers.

A German security expert tested an iPhone 4, iPhone 5s and iPad 2.

According to CNN, the expert was able to access email attachments on a locked device -- just by plugging it into a computer and using some passcode-bypassing software.

Apple says they are already aware of the problem, but did not say when it would be fixed.
