DISCOVER FAILS IN FACETIME CONDITIONING SYSTEM CONFIDENTIALITY

A security violation recently discovered FaceTime – Apple Video Call Application – allows the user to hear and even see the caller on an iPhone before even responding, which raises questions about the confidentiality of the system.

The & # 39; bug & # 39 ;, & quot; first reported on Apple's website 9to5Mac.com, was also reflected in various media.

A video posted to the @BmManski Twitter account shows how easily this bug allows you to hear the sound coming from an iPhone connected via FaceTime. On Monday night, the video was seen more than a million times and shared about 10,000 times in California.

Twitter users explained on the social network how to disable FaceTime, until a correction is provided.

An Apple support page indicates that the FaceTime group is "temporarily unavailable" starting at 7:16 pm (03:16 GMT) due to an ongoing "problem" that is not specified.

A statement from Apple, quoted in the US media, states that the iPhone maker is aware of the problem and "has identified a fix that will be introduced in a software update over the course of the week."

According to videos posted on Twitter, when a person dials a phone number on FaceTime, they can opt for a screen for an option with the goal of adding a partner. This group call is initiated even though the caller has not yet responded.

"Turn off FaceTime for now, until Apple fixes it" Jack Dorsey, co-founder of Twitter, said in a message posted on the social network.

No Apple responsible responded on Monday night.
