Apple has come ahead and apologised for the FaceTime fiasco that happened a few days back that was causing breach of privacy for a number of users using this App. The bug was originally detected by a 14 yr old and soon became viral on the internet prompting the company to check on it immediately. Apple has promised that the bug fix will be available by next week and the users will have to bear with the issue till then.
Although Apple was very late to respond to the request of the 14 yr old boy, the iPhone maker put out an apology that also thanked the kid’s family for reporting the issue:
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.
