Reports say the bug in the video chat app could allow an iPhone user calling another iPhone through Group Facetime to hear the audio from the other handset - even if the receiver did not accept the call.
Apple has made the group functionality on its FaceTime application temporarily unavailable as it rushes to fix a glitch that allowed users to listen in on the people they were calling when they did not pick up the call.
If the caller then enters their own number as that of the added caller, a group call begins even though the person being called hasn't even answered. In some cases, the bug can also show live video of the other person if they press a volume button to dismiss the call.

The Cupertino, Calif. -based company was not immediately available to comment on the update on its system status page. You can do that by going to your Settings, scrolling down to FaceTime and tapping it, and then toggling it off in that menu. "Until Apple fixes the bug, it's not clear how to defend yourself against this attack either aside from disabling FaceTime altogether". It also affects Mac users when they are called from an iPhone.
"The FaceTime bug is an egregious breach of privacy that puts New Yorkers at risk", Governor Cuomo said in the statement.
