That’s right, 14-year-old Grant Thompson will receive an undisclosed amount of money for finding the Group FaceTime bug that let you listen in on someone before they answer a call. Although details of the payment have not been released, Apple does offer up to $200,000 in cash bounties as part of its bug bounty program. In addition to that, Apple will give an additional gift toward the teenager’s education, according to Reuters.

After the bug was disclosed last month, the company temporarily pressed disable on group FaceTime until it could roll out the iOS 12.1.4 update to fix the problem. Now, Apple has issued a fix for the FaceTime bug just hours ago in its latest update.

“We again apologize to our customers and we thank them for their patience. In addition to addressing the bug that was reported, our team conducted a thorough security audit of the FaceTime service and made additional updates to both the FaceTime app and server to improve security,” the company said in a statement.
