Apple releasing iOS 12.1.4 to fix FaceTime eavesdropping bug later today

[2019-02-07 17:17:52]

Last week was a tough one for Apple and privacy. First, a huge bug in Group FaceTime would allow someone to eavesdrop on another FaceTime user just by calling them and adding themselves to a group call before the contact answered. Then, a project from Facebook was revealed to be spying on users, violating Apple’s Enterprise Developer Program policies. The latter was dealt with by revoking Facebook’s enterprise certificate, rendering their internal apps unusable. The same action was taken against Google, which had a similar project. The post Apple releasing iOS 12.1.4 to fix FaceTime eavesdropping bug later today appeared first on 9to5Mac.
