Recently, Apple was forced to disable Walkie-Talkie talkie application on its device due to an unknown security flaw.
Specifically, users who use a radio app on the Apple Watch can eavesdrop on another user without their consent. The Walkie-Talkie application is a feature added in the WatchOS 5 update on Apple Watch that allows two users to chat with each other like radios communication. Apple has been warned about this vulnerability, but according to reports, Apple has not recorded any damage from users.
“We reviewed and found that disabling the Walkie-Talkie Talk app on Apple Watch is correct because this error could allow someone to eavesdrop on the user's iPhone without permission. We apologize for the inconvenience and will fix it as soon as possible ”, Apple wrote in the statement.
Apple recently sent an apology notice to users. The company did not disclose how to exploit the vulnerability, but Apple has completely disabled the application of the Damage on Apple Watch for security reasons. The Walkie Talkie application will still be installed on devices, but will not work until it is updated with a fix.
Earlier this year, a vulnerability was discovered on FaceTime calling, allowing users to eavesdrop on the conversation before being accepted. Apple then released a fix patch. It is possible that the radios application will also be fixed by Apple and re-operated in the shortest time.
