About the startling facetime bug of the apple, who allowed anyone to convert the iPhone into a live microphone, a 14-year-old boy stands, who stuck on an eShoulddroping defect for more than a week before taking action from Apple Was the ditch.

Grant Thompson of a high school in Tucson, Arizona, said, "The thing that surprised me the most was that this mess happened in the first place." "I'm only 14 years old and I got this accident, instead Apple's people are paid to find glitters."

Not only that, Grant and his mother said that they have spent a week so that they can try to do something about the bug in the FaceTime group-chatting feature of Apple. The bug allowed the caller to remotely activate another person's microphone, even before the person has accepted or rejected the call.

"It took us nine days to get feedback," he said. "My mother contacted her almost every single day through email, calling, faxing." Out of fax, he jokes, "I do not even know what he is. It's probably older than me."


This evasdropping fear is over now that Apple has disabled group chat, but the problem can dog the company for a long time. New York State officials opened a consumer rights check. Other people are questioning how long Apple took to address the bug.

In a statement on Friday, Apple thanked Thompson because he announced that he has identified one and will release it next week. FaceTime group chatting will start again.

Grant, a straight-a-student, who plays basketball, serves the community and enjoys the video game "Fortnight", on Saturday night, January 19, was calling friends to play, when he found the fault walked.

Chris Wespal, chief technology officer of security firm Veracode, said, "If a 14-year-old child discovered it, I wonder how many other people searched for it."

Apple did not say if he has such records that can answer that question.

It has been said in Friday's statement that Apple engineers worked fast as soon as the necessary details were received to reproduce the bug. Although Apple did not accept the delay, the company said that "it is committed to improving the processes through which we receive and forward these reports so that they can be delivered to the right people as quickly as possible."

The company - widely widely praised for its wide response - may come under increased investigations because the regulator wants to know more about the vulnerability.

New York Attorney General Letitia James and Gov Andrew Cuomo said on Wednesday that they are investigating Apple's failure to warn consumers about the "fat time bug" and to respond to the issue of addressing this issue.

He said that the bug put the privacy of New York consumers in jeopardy. James said that his office review would include "a thorough investigation of Apple's reaction".

In October last, Apple introduced 32-person video conferencing facility for iPhones, iPads and Macs. With a bug, a face-to-face group-chat user who is calling another Apple device can hear the audio - even if the receiver did not accept the call. The bug was triggered when the callers changed a face-time call to a group chat, from which the FaceTime thinks the receiver has accepted the chat.

In the case of Grant, he had just prepared his Xbox and invited a friend, Nathan to invite him so that he could play "Fortnite" with him.

"You can swipe and add another person, so I added another friend, Diego, to see if he wants to play too," he said. "But as soon as I added Diego, it forced Nathan to reply."

He said that at first he was shocked, then tried to repeat the bug and it happened every time. His mother, Michel Thompson, said that he tried to reach Apple the next day.

"Thompson, who worked as an advocate, said," They could test it within two minutes, they realized that this is true and Apple has increased this chain. "The average citizen needs to have a better process to report such things, and a timely response."

He eventually approached someone who advised him to register as a software developer to present the bug. Such reports can sometimes cause "bug bounties", so that those who find fault may get financial reward. The family had hoped Grant could get such an award or at least some credit for his discovery.

"Every day he would ask me, 'Have we heard from Apple yet?' he said. The family tried to reach the apple through many channels. He left the comment on Twitter, one of them directed Tim Cook, CEO, and through uploading the problem, Apple engineers uploaded a video to play. But it was not until a technical blog reported it. Errors at the beginning of this week - leading many people to experiment with detective bugs - that Apple has done an unusual way to temporarily stop the group chat feature.

Apple refused to say when he learned about the problem. The company will also not say whether he has such logs that can show that if someone took advantage of the bug, he would be known publicly this week. According to Michel Thompson, an email shared with Associated Press, the company arrived on Tuesday to offer some public credits to the Thompson family for its efforts.

Grant Thompson said before the announcement of Apple on Friday, "It just needs to say thank you for me." "And of course, the bug bounty, which would be great to achieve, but until we get rid of this beautiful groundbreaking bug, and Apple thanked, it would be great."
