Apple: il baco nella mela...
Apple FaceTime ‘Bug’ Provides Video, Audio Surveillance With One Step

The company says the bug will be fixed with an update that is about to be released,

but the fact that it existed has many people concerned..

It lets users listen in, and watch under the right condition, to others without the person ever knowing.

The mess up lets a user hear the other person, even if they haven’t answered the call.

“CNBC tested it and verified that it’s a real bug.

I tried placing a video call to my editor from my iPhone using Apple’s FaceTime app.

“Then, before he picked up, I used the menu option to add somebody else to the call and, as 9to5Mac’s directions state, I added myself to the call.

Suddenly, I could hear my editor, even though he never picked up.

“We continued having a conversation while his phone only gave him the option to answer.
There was no indication that the call had already gone through.”

The Verge reported that if the person you’re calling tries to end the call hitting the power button on their phone, it sends video without audio.

“That means the person calling you can see a video of you or your surroundings as if you’d answered the call.

I replicated this with a friend.”

This bug seems to rely on the FaceTime Group Call feature, since you’re trying to add another person to the call.

Group FaceTime launched last year.

Obviously, this is a horrifying privacy violation.

Many people wonder how many calls Apple monitored before the ‘bug’ was discovered.

“Apple, which is scheduled to report earnings on Tuesday afternoon, said a fix is coming this week.”

“We’re aware of this issue and we have identified a fix that will be released in a software update later this week,” a spokesperson told reporters.

The company deactivated Group FaceTime to prevent people from exploiting the bug before the update is released.

In the meantime, users can be extra safe by turning off FaceTime.

Just open the phone’s settings, choose Facetime, and toggle it to the off position.

Regardless of the solution, many users wonder why and how the bug got in the application in the first place.

Either it was the result of some very sloppy coding, or it was intentional, they argue.
