Why do I feel like this apple bug is a secret spy tool that leaked into mainstream, I mean it definitely was coded by someone for a purpose?
A major bug has been discovered in iOS that lets a caller hear and see a person on the other end of a FaceTime call before the call has been answered
The bug is simple to exploit. First, you call someone on FaceTime. Next, before they answer, swipe up and add yourself to the call. That’s it. You can hear through the person’s phone, all without them answering the call.
Interestingly, the person on the other end of this test call could also hear you, so its both ways. The solutions are to deactivate face-time all together and put a sticker in the front facing camera

Such spy ware can recover a computer password with 96% accuracy and a PIN code entered at an ATM with 87% accuracy.
