Montreal law firm working on a lawsuit against Apple regarding FaceTime exploit

Another day, another lawsuit. Well, another one soon anyway. The Montreal, Canada law firm of Lambert Avocat has started an application to be authorized to bring a class action suit against Apple.

The potential lawsuit involves the Group Calling exploit that allows a FaceTime video caller to hear the audio from a recipient's iPhone without the call even being picked up. Apple is supposed to release a patch to fix this issue this week.

Lambert Avocat’s application seeks to obtain a compensation for privacy violations for all persons who own an Apple product, including an iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, iPod, and/or MacBook operating on an iOS system of 12.1 or more recent, and who used the FaceTime app.
