An error in Apple Smart Watch allows third parties to listen to conversations

The application Walkie-Talkie on Smart Watch's Apple canceled due to an error that allowed users iPhone listen to the conversations of clock users.

SmartWatch

The Walkie-Talkie application was designed to allow two people to communicate through short audio conversations. Because of a problem software, an iPhone user could listen to the dialogues that take place via the Walkie-Talkie application without the Smart Watch's consent.

Apple corrected the malfunction of the application and apologized to users for the inconvenience they suffered. The giant, furthermore, claims that no one hacker did not take advantage of this vulnerability. Of course, we can never be sure of that.

Let's remind that at the beginning of the year, η Apple had discovered another error in FaceTime, which allowed some callers to turn on the iPhone's other microphone. The company then chose to fix the vulnerability through a software patch.

In addition to, Zoom recently revealed that a software problem has allowed hackers to use unauthorized users' cameras. As the BBC says, security researcher Jonathan Leitschuh has discovered a problem that allowed third parties to start a videoconference and gain access to a device's camera.
