Hear, hear for FaceTime

A bug in FaceTime allows someone to call and listen to you (and possibly even see you) without you answering the call.

 

Apple has responded by disabling the Group FaceTime feature, which is related to the bug, but that may not be enough.  The only way to ensure nobody is listening to you is to answer every call (so you at least know that they are listening to you) or to disable the app.

Re: Hear, hear for FaceTime

 

It'll be ironic if a user becomes aware of eavesdropping on FaceTime after seeing his / her private info posted on FaceBook...

Re: Hear, hear for FaceTime

Sould Apple not just have Siri analyze useage and then in the future(when it is legal) send terminators back in time to punish those FaceTime users she judges to have abused this feature/defect for eavesdropping?
