Apple company said "Siri is not meant to be reading hidden notification"

iPhone users will be familiar with Siri even though not everybody uses it. Siri is an artificial intelligent device that comes with an iPhone, it's just like an errand boy or girl. For example, if you want to dial a particular number from your contact and you are very lazy to tap on your screen , you can call on Siri to call a particular number for you and it will do so.

Recently it was discovered that there was bug that allow Siri to read hidden lock screen notification which is ought no to be, Siri is not meant to read notification under lock screen, but they have promised to fix it as soon as possible .

“We are aware of the issue and it will be addressed in an upcoming software update,” Apple said in a statement provided to MacRumors.

The fix is likely to come in iOS 11.3, which remains in beta testing, but Apple might also address the problem with a minor update such as iOS 11.2.7, MacRumors reported on Thursday.

As a result of the bug, Siri can read out notification content, even those that are hidden, from a wide selection of apps when someone asks the assistant to do so without verifying whether the command was coming from the owner of the device. The problem was reported by Brazilian website MacMagazine earlier this week.

In a test, MacRumors reproduced this issue on an iPhone X running both iOS 11.2.6 and the latest iOS 11.3 beta, while confirming that it does not affect iMessage. Siri’s behaviour becomes a privacy issue because it can read out messages and emails from third-party apps such as Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, and Gmail, even if an iPhone is locked and notifications are hidden, the report said.

If Siri refuse to work properly then the issue of privacy has been jeopardize and this can cause a lot of havoc imagining Siri ready third-part privacy under lock screen even what you've been hiding from friends or someone around you.
