Books – Assem Al-Ansari:
Visetime is a preferred video application for many Apple users, but a software bug has been detected to allow the user to listen to another video call before a call is received.
In addition, the program error causes the call receiver to be recorded, but attempting to mute the call by pressing the Volume Down button or turning on the camera will turn on the camera even though the incoming call screen still appears on the receiver screen. In fact, the callers will see and hear the other side.
Although Apple said it will introduce this vulnerability later this week, you will need to disable VisTime and use an alternative application to ensure communication and privacy.
