iOS Crash Bug Affected Twitter and Snapchat

The recently discovered text messaging vulnerability that is able to crash iOS devices and Macs with simple text now hit Twitter and permanently broke Snapchat text chat. The flaw is known to cause Apple’s text handling system to choke on certain characters from Arabic, Marathi and Chinese languages, eventually crashing iPhones, iPads, Apple Watches or Macs. The bug also affects apps running on iOS.

Now it turned out that the crashing message can be sent over Twitter either through direct messages or public mentions. Indeed, if you use an iPhone with notifications turned on, this may instantly crash your device. However, the security researchers mention that the message didn’t cause lasting damage during testing. Besides Twitter, Snapchat also became the victim of the flaw. Upon receiving a text chat with the offending string, it crashes the iPhone when the user tries to read it.

In result of the bug, the chat history can’t be reached without crashing a device, and the fatal message can’t be erased. At the same time, other messages can be sent to and received from other contacts. After discovering the bug, Apple issued recovery instructions for its Messages app with the help of Siri. It can also be fixed using the Photos app by sending a picture to a damaging contact and gaining access to the message history so it can be deleted.

Apple promised to issue a fix for the bug in the next software update, but is yet to do so. In the meantime, there were no reports of hackers maliciously exploiting this bug – regular users are just having fun sending the text string to friends, family and strangers trying to crash their iPhones.
