Apple to fix FaceTime bug

30 January 2019

The bug worked by adding your own number to a Group FaceTime call, which then allowed you to hear audio from the original recipient's phone, even if that person did not accept the call.

The Verge reports that the bug works when you call someone on FaceTime video. 'You can FaceTime any iOS device running 12.1 and listen in remotely-WITHOUT THE OTHER PERSON ANSWERING THE CALL'.

In the meantime, Apple's website indicates Group FaceTime is unavailable, and the company confirmed it has started disabling the Group FaceTime feature for all users. If the recipient hit the power or volume button, the phone would broadcast video as well, the Vergereported. Group FaceTime was introduced on October 30, and according to the Verge, the flaw "could have been exploited for as long as three months".

Apple has now disabled the group FaceTime feature in response to the find.

If you value your privacy, you should seriously consider turning off FaceTime on your iPhone or iPad.

It is possible even if the recipient does not answer the call. This is apparently exactly the case with iOS, as users recently uncovered a bug in the operating system that allows FaceTime users to listen to microphone audio from any user without their actual permission.

The governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, released a statement warning people about the bug and urging people to disable the app until Apple fixes the issue.

He said: "The FaceTime bug is an egregious breach of privacy that puts New Yorkers at risk".
