A simple bug in Apple’s IOS lets users crash your phone from anywhere in the world with a simple text message! Quite simple by sending a text message with a mixture of English and Arabic in!
Below is the text you need to copy and past to send! I’m not sure it will work from here but give it a go! – This has been pasted from my iphone to here, below is also a image! Hours of fun!
لُلُصّبُلُلصّبُررً ॣ ॣh ॣ ॣ 冗
Copy and paste ^^ Text that to somebody
with a iPhone it makes it turn off and
The good news is this bug is not dangerous to your phone, it simple causes a minor “Crash” which everyone seems to be calling it, the apple logo is displayed and seconds later your phone is back online.
The recipient of this little Apple IOS Iphone Bug needs to be on their phone to see it happen, if they are fast asleep on the sofa after watching terrible day time telly then they will miss it in action and just think you send them a stupid message! – They will also need the notifications on for their phone to process the bug in the Arabic language set.
The text string is very specific and is therefore highly unlikely to be replicated by accident. Those worried about being attacked can protect their iPhone from the bug by disabling notification banners. Getting notifications on an Apple Watch also protects the iPhone from the bug.
Some users falling victim to the attack have reported that they can no longer access messages.
Others have reported that sending a photo to the contact via the Photos app can allow them to access the message history and delete the conversation, clearing the source of the crash.
The bug is being used as a prank, with users taking to Twitter to vent their frustration after crashes. As with any glitch like this, it is that possible hackers could turn the bug into a method of attack beyond simple pranks.
