News Apple Watch Walkie Talkie App Silenced: Serious Vulnerability Reported
#1
[Image: rtx2fw23.jpg?quality=75&strip=all&w=410&...7651102837]
                    

             Apple has recently silenced their Walkie Talki app on their Apple Watches, after a vulnerability was discovered that could allow attackers to listen in on conversations in real time. Apple has not given a statement on the nature of the vulnerability nor when a fix will be rolled out, so for now, the app is down until further notice. 

             Apple did have this to say in a statement that was received by Tech Crunch:

             "We were just made aware of a vulnerability related to the Walkie-Talkie app on the Apple Watch and have disabled the function as we quickly fix the issue. We apologize to our customers for the inconvenience and will restore the functionality as soon as possible.

Although we are not aware of any use of the vulnerability against a customer and specific conditions and sequences of events are required to exploit it, we take the security and privacy of our customers extremely seriously. We concluded that disabling the app was the right course of action as this bug could allow someone to listen through another customer’s iPhone without consent. We apologize again for this issue and the inconvenience."


         Original article can be found here.


         That was the news folks, have a good day, and stay safe out there.
