Apple has released the fix for its recently discovered bug in the FaceTime software that allowed people to eavesdrop on others while using its group video chat feature.

“We again apologise and we thank our customers for their patience. In addition to addressing the bug that was reported, our team conducted a thorough security audit of the FaceTime service and made additional updates to both the FaceTime app and server to improve security,” The Washington Post quoted Apple as saying on Friday.

Even as Apple rolled out a security fix for consumers, New York Attorney General Letitia James is reportedly investigating the company’s response to the FaceTime bug.

Rewarding him for his discovery, Apple has decided to pay an undisclosed amount to the Thompson family along with making a gift towards Grant’s education, the report said.

“Described herein, however, are electronic devices with enclosures that use glass to define multiple sides of the enclosure. In such cases, the enclosure may appear visually and tactilely seamless, such that the entire enclosure may appear to be formed from a single piece of glass (even though it may be formed from multiple separate pieces attached together),” states the patent.
