Apple Watch Bug Allowed to Eavesdrop on iPhone

Apple

The Walkie-Talkie app allows two people who accept an invitation to send and receive short audio messages. But Apple said it was “aware” of the flaw, which “could allow someone to listen to another client’s iPhone without consent.” He disabled this feature and apologized for the inconvenience.

However, Apple said it was unaware that the error in the Walkie-Talkie was being used by someone in the real world. He said that “specific conditions and sequences of events” would be required to exploit the error.

Apple discovered a similar “eavesdropping” flaw in its FaceTime video call application back in January.

In some cases, subscribers can activate the microphone on the target iPhone, even if the recipient did not answer their call. He released a software update to fix the error.

In a separate release, the Zoom video conferencing platform addresses a flaw that allows attackers to gain access to webcams without permission.

Researcher Jonathan Leitschuh discovered an error allowing attackers to initiate video calls and gain access to the target’s webcam. Zoom originally described the problem as a low priority.

But on Tuesday, an update was released to solve the problem. “We greatly appreciate the hard work of the security researcher in identifying security issues on our platform,” the statement said.

Apple’s iPhone X mobile phone is the first iPhone with an OLED screen – a mlp technology known for its greater contrast and saturation, as well as its tendency to burn. To make sure customers know that their phone for a thousand dollars may suffer from a long display, in the future, tech titan updated the iPhone X’s display support page to explain how the OLED screen works.

The company explains that “some shifts in colors and shades” when looking at the screen at an angle are perfectly normal. She also says that OLEDs show small visual changes with long-term use, such as displaying high-contrast remnants of the image shown on the screen for a long period of time, even when it is already showing another image.
