A MAJOR glitch on the FaceTime app lets users listen in on people they call - even if they haven't answered their phone. Apple faces huge privacy concerns after the discovery of the bug was revealed by users on social media on Monday. Viral footage showed how simple it is to spy on friends using the app. Callers can turn their pals' phone into a secret listening device with just a few simple steps. First, they need to place a call using the FaceTime app. Then, before the recipient answers, the caller needs to tap the menu option to add somebody else to the call. The caller then needs to add themselves to the call - which somehow allows them to hear what's going on through the recipient's phone. The recipient will be presented with an "incoming call" screen with the option to answer - but they are given no indication that the call has secretly gone through. Other tests have shown how even the front-facing camera on the recipient's phone can be accessed by the glitch without … [Read more...] about FaceTime glitch lets users listen in on people they call – even if they haven’t answered their phone

I'm trying to create a falling word typing game like z-type. I have used the code provided here I want to create multiple levels in the game....there will some changes in the code...for example - in the word display file, I want the active word to be changed to red for level 1 and blue for level 2.

FACEBOOK users who had their data swiped without their permission by Cambridge Analytica told The Sun they are livid at the social network. The social network began sending out notifications to users impacted by its latest breach earlier this week. Around 87 million people are believed to have had their info snatched without consent by a rogue app called "This is Your Digital Life", whose creator then shared that data with Trump-affiliated firm Cambridge Analytica. Until recently, the snatched info was thought to have been limited to bits from public profiles, including phone numbers, email addresses, and political and religious leanings. But Facebook buried a shocking revelation in its data notification, admitting that around 1,500 users also shared their private messages with the shady app. And people are understandably outraged by it all. So, I got a notification that some of my information was shared with Cambridge Analytica because of an app a Facebook friend used and I … [Read more...] about Facebook users caught in data breach are fuming at the social network
