Apple Has Released an Update to Fix FaceTime Eavesdropping

Apple Has Finally Released A FaceTime Fix That You Need To Download Right Now

Credit: Tom's GuideIf you've been hiding under a rock for the last two weeks, a flaw in Group FaceTime allowed anyone on the call to hear the audio from any recipient, regardless of whether the person on the other end had picked up.

As Apple's system status page points out, the group FaceTime servers are now back online and you can once again make group FaceTime calls- but only after you update.

The FaceTime fix is included in the latest version of Apple's iOS 12 system, which became available to install Thursday. The company had also disabled Group FaceTime to prevent anyone from misusing the flaw.

Body from plane wreckage identified as footballer Sala, UK police say
After the confirmation of Sala's death, Cardiff issued a statement saying "he and David will forever remain in our thoughts". Earlier this week, the footballer's father, Horacio Sala , acknowledged that there was no prospect of finding his son alive.

"A logic issue existed in the handling of Group FaceTime calls". Details of this new bug and how it could be exploited were not disclosed by Apple. Here's what's fixed and how to apply the updates.

The Arizona 14-year-old, Grant Thompson, originally happened upon the bug on January 20.

Apple plans to contribute to his college fund and will also pay a bounty to him and his family for reporting the bug. Media coverage, however, appears to be what escalated the problem to Apple's attention, which is why the company - after issuing an apology and an assurance that it's working fast to fix the bug - told CNBC that it's "committed to improving the process by which we receive and escalate bug reports".

For macOS users, the 10.14.3 update may automatically be installed.

If you aren't in any particular rush to install the new software, and if you have the "Automatic Updates" feature turned on, then your iOS device will update in the background the next time you plug it in.
