So.. What then?
While I'm sure that this threat is legitimate in terms of allowing some strange person to access your phone and other tech devices, I can't fathom what kind of danger having access to sound and audio could make. I mean, how could this cause a disruption? Perhaps I'm not thinking like a terrorist, but I think that there wouldn't be much impale even if someone were to commandeer those functions of my mobile device?

Another level of hack
This is a huge breakthrough in the realm of security hacks so far. I have just disabled my FaceTime function and even pasted a small sticker to cover the front camera of my phone. I know I am not someone who anyone would want to even hack, but that level of paranoia is just erupting as we speak.
