Safari and iPhone Can Crash by Opening a Link to Website

Safari and iPhone Can Crash by Opening a Link to Website

New entertainment: prank website forces Apple mobile devices to reboot and computers and Android devices to hang. Similar entertainment was popular when users had fun with the “effective power” iPhone text message bug. Now they are sending a link to users of Apple’s Safari browser that is able to crash their Apple devices.

The link is not innocent at all: it’s crashsafari.com. When opened, the site overloads the default browser with a self-generating text string that populates the address bar. It takes a few seconds to force an iPhone to reboot and heat up, because the device tries to handle the code of the website. iPads face the similar fate, as they also run Safari as a default browser. Moreover, even Android devices running Chrome heat up and become sluggish. The problem can be solved by rebooting the iPhone or quitting Chrome on an Android device.

It should be noted that desktop and laptop computers are also affected to a lesser degree – it is all about how much processing power they have. For example, the link will cause Safari on a Mac to crash. Chrome on any OS also slows down. Apparently, the code of the site generates an ever-increasing string of characters. It is harder and harder for the browser to load it, and eventually it may result in a memory failure and force the device to reboot.

Just like last time with the effective power text message bug, people have started sending out the new link disguised by URL shorteners to force iPhone users to click on it and crash their devices. So, if you own an iPhone, please be careful about which shortened or obfuscated links you click on. According to statistics, one of the shortened links has already been clicked over 100,000 times. However, it carries no harm except for reboot – your device will behave normally after a reboot.
