A Bug allows anyone to crash the iPhone with a Message

A new bug in the latest version of iOS shows a string of Arabic characters and symbols in a special text message which is followed by the crashing of the phone.

It affects the Messages App so much so that the lines of the message after being copied and texted to another iPhone, shuts it off as well.

Affecting iOS 7 and iOS 8 now, it is due to the banner notifications processing the Unicode text using CoreText API.

This susceptibility of the iPhone to stop working can happen in any mode; but in Jailbreaking iOS, it enters into the safe mode.

The only patch to this vulnerability is to send a photo or text to the original dispatcher with the help of the share sheet in another app.

The Reddit website has been flooded with comments after the recent attack of the malicious iMessage on their iPhones.
