Apple précise également que les versions précédentes des systèmes d'exploitation ne pourront plus profiter de la fonctionnalité.

Apple a tenu sa promesse. La marque réitère ses excuses et va récompenser l'adolescent qui a découvert la faille. Cette faille étant due à un bug d'iOS et pas seulement à un bug des serveurs d'Apple, notez bien que vous ne retrouverez pas l'usage de Group FaceTime si vous n'installez pas le correctif.

Avec iOS 12.1.4, Apple corrige également d'autres bugs de sécurité, y compris en rapport avec FaceTime et une vulnérabilité affectant Live Photos qui n'avait pas été identifiée. Le constructeur crédite aussi des chercheurs de Google ainsi que les membres du Project Zero pour une faille de corruption de mémoire. Des failles plutôt critiques (dites 0-day), dans la mesure où elles seraient déjà exploitées par des pirates! Pas très rassurant. Les utilisateurs d'appareils tournant sous iOS (iPhone et iPad) sont donc invités à installer la mise à jour dès qu'elle sera disponible.

Ces révélations interviennent à un moment où l'on apprend qu'une faille a été découverte dans macOS. Comme il l'a montré dans la vidéo qu'il a publiée sur YouTube, il est possible, grâce à un petit logiciel, de récupérer ces précieux sésames sur un Mac, même sans avoir des accès d'administrateur.

La semaine dernière, un vilain bug était découvert dans FaceTime. Une méthode pour le moins originale!
