A serious bug in Apple's video calling platform, FaceTime, allows people to call others and listen to their phone's microphone whether or not they pick up the call. If you include yourself in the call, you will then start an audio call between yourself and the person you are ringing, even before they answer the call. A subsequent report by The Verge also stated that the bug can also activate the recipient's camera, but it would require the recipients to press the Power button when the call comes in.
The issue, which has been reported by Bloomberg as well as 9to5Mac, seems to only occur with Group FaceTime calls and also requires somewhat specific circumstances. The issue was recently discovered and while it definitely poses a major privacy problem, Apple won't be able to fix it until later this week.
It's likely that the update will be included in the public version of iOS 12.2, the same iteration of Apple's operating system that is set to bring Apple News to Canadian iPhone users. And that could be a very, very, very disastrous bug (via 9to5Mac).

BleepingComputer has tested and confirmed that this bug works in iOS 12.1.2 and we were able to hear and see the person.
For those who are rightfully concerned about this bug, my suggestion is that you disable FaceTime immediately until Apple releases a patch.
In order to deactivate FaceTime on your iOS device, navigate to "Settings, ' then tap on 'FaceTime" and select 'Off'.
