Apple has just released a statement apologizing for the FaceTime bug that we had reported about earlier. Also, it has promised to fix the bug.. that will be rolled out next week.
While the fix is coming really soon, Apple has disabled the group FaceTime call immediately after they were aware of this bug. They also thanked the Thompson family who reported the bug to Apple.
“We have fixed the Group FaceTime security bug on Apple’s servers and we will issue a software update to re-enable the feature for users next week. We thank the Thompson family for reporting the bug. We sincerely apologize to our customers who were affected and all who were concerned about this security issue. We appreciate everyone’s patience as we complete this process.
We want to assure our customers that as soon as our engineering team became aware of the details necessary to reproduce the bug, they quickly disabled Group FaceTime and began work on the fix. We are committed to improving the process by which we receive and escalate these reports, in order to get them to the right people as fast as possible. We take the security of our products extremely seriously and we are committed to continuing to earn the trust Apple customers place in us.”
