Apple Now Faces a Lawsuit Over Facetime Privacy Bug

Posted by at 9:04 am on January 30, 2019

An Houston has filed a lawsuit against Apple FaceTime bug  that allowed potential attackers to spy on private FaceTime conversations that were supposed to be secured with end-to-end encryption.

The FaceTime software flaw allowed others to hear what the people they were calling were talking about before the person answers the call or were aware that someone was listening in on them.

In the lawsuit, Larry Williams II argues that Apple didn’t give people enough warning about this issue once it discovered it. The lawsuit also states that Williams was with a client who was doing a private deposition, which he now thinks was compromised by the FaceTime bug. The lawyer is seeking punitive damages against Apple for claims of product liability, negligence, warranty and fraudulent misrepresentation.

If the lawsuit goes forward, it may give the public more information on how exactly the bug happened ans how Apple deals with privacy and security issues in testing before shipping a product.  The case could also gave class status, as well.
