Title: 'Text bomb' is latest Apple bug
Post by: eye30 on January 18, 2018, 11:06:07
A new "text bomb" affecting Apple's iPhone and Mac computers has been discovered.

Abraham Masri, a software developer, tweeted about the flaw which typically causes an iPhone to crash and in some cases restart.

Simply sending a message containing a link which pointed to Mr Masri's code on programming site GitHub would be enough to activate the bug - even if the recipient did not click the link itself.

But users should not be alarmed.
