Oh the word "breach" is actually not accurate. It's a bug so blatently simple that anyone with a basic knowledge of programming understands the bug.

Between two "if ............  goto ........." lines there was a simple "goto ........ " line. So, the program lines/code after the "goto ........ " line were/was simply skipped. That meant that a IOS didn't perform a number of security checks.
