Apple to fix bug that allows Siri to read hidden notifications

Major Siri bug exposes all your hidden Signal messages on iPhone
As an aside, and given the bevy of bugs and security related issues we've seen Apple deal with over the past few months, there have been reports that Apple with iOS 12 will take its foot off the gas ever so slightly in an effort to focus more on system stability.
However, a Mac Magazine reader discovered that Siri will read the content of most messages even though the content is hidden on the display. If it does, then fans can expect iOS 11.3 to be the update that would end the problem with Siri.
Upon its release late a year ago, iOS 11 was widely viewed as one of the buggiest iOS releases in history.
The new bug is not about a botched up functionality but it is something that can be used to spy on others notifications.
Protect Yourself: To hide message content on the Lock screen, click Settings Notifications, choose the app. This, however, can be bypassed by using Siri.
Apple is soon rolling out a fix for the bug that's allowing Siri to read out hidden lock screen notifications. Siri didn't check to make sure the owner of the phone was the person who was asking. iMessages and SMS texts were still kept private from being read aloud, but Facebook Messenger, Slack, email apps like Apple's own Mail app, and more could all have messages read by Siri. The operation was possible even though you have set your notifications hidden on the lock screen. This is a serious bug since it effectively removes a layer of security. Such design flaws in Digital Assistants will only make it more risky and thus override the usability. They further assured that the same will be fixed in the upcoming software update. It has reported it to Apple.
