Security Flaw Found in Apple FaceTime
A serious security flaw has been discovered in Apple's popular FaceTime beta program that could compromise users' privacy.
FaceTime, a video calling program that is enabled on Mac computers as well as the iPhone and iPod Touch, has a bug that allows a person to change a user's password without the user's knowledge, and to view and even edit the user's security questions and answers, according to an Oct. 21 report on engadet.com.
Further complicating the program is the fact that when a user signs off of FaceTime, his or her password shows up in the password field when trying to sign in again. Apple suggests setting up a master password , and never leaving a computer open and running in a public place.
