iPhone Lets You Eavesdrop On Other People! Oh Hell No!!

Apple has discovered a new bug in its Facetime feature. The software is letting people listen in on the people they are calling and even see through their front facing camera without them even picking up the call!!!  Oh hell no!!


Apple did say they have identified the problem and the solution to it and will be releasing a new update later this week.

The bug works o iPhones and iPads running iOS 12.1, and Apple PCs running macOS Mojave, which have the recently added Group FaceTime feature.

It is activated when you call someone via FaceTime, swipe up to add another person to the call, and add your own phone number. The person who initiated the call is then able to hear the live audio on the other person's phone, even though the recipient has not accepted the call. And their screen gives no indication that their conversation is being transmitted. In some cases, the bug can also show live video of the other person if they press a volume button to dismiss the call.

CNN senior editor Brian Ries successfully used it on friends, family members and a colleague, and in one instance was even able to see video of the people he was calling.

To avoid falling victim to the bug, disable FaceTime on all your devices until Apple's software updates have been released.

On an iPhone or iPad, go to Settings -> FaceTime, and toggle off the green button at the top of the screen. To turn it off on a Mac, open the FaceTime app and go to FaceTime on top of the screen, then select "Turn FaceTime Off."
