Now, if a user of these devices make a call to your Android (device 3) through (Device 1) and then cut off the Internet connection; the (device 3) would respond to the call automatically! Of course, the desktop device (device 2) will be able to auto-connect and eavesdropping without the knowledge of the owner of the machine (a 3).
It's good that Microsoft has acknowledged the existence of this gap, and it is working on a fix now. This flaw was discovered by users of a site Reddit Reddit, where it was stated that this method works once in three attempts.
