    I put the pattern lock screen on my android and saw that handcent SMS text popped up above the lock screen and you could even text back.

    Does anyone think this is a serious security flaw?

    Not really since it can be turned off in the Handcent settings.

    Its a lockscreen widget. Power amp and stock music players have them to as do full lockscteen replacements like magick locker.

    It doesn't really bypass the lockscreen just gives you a quick reply option, kinda like the music player on the iPhone except with text messages ;)
