Nicknamed "chaiOS", or the "text bomb", it's a text message containing a malicious link. He called the iPhone flaw "chaiOS bug" and said, "Text the link below, it will freeze the recipient s device, and possibly restart it".
On a Mac, the bug also slows the Safari web browser down and drains battery levels. The Messages app then becomes unresponsive. Apple's response, apparently, was to get the code yanked from the internet, but that's, at best, a short-term solution. "And please, please, don't be tempted to try the text bomb attack out on anyone else - you're not being amusing, you're just being a j**k". Since this exploit relies on automatic link previews, typical security advice - don't click on random links - doesn't apply. The link has now been taken down by the site.
Users were required to contact Apple directly for a fix, the website says, making this particular bug more severe than the recent "text bomb" code. The bug typically causes Apple devices to crash and restart. He said he'd reported the bug to Apple the previous day, he told BuzzFeed, but had not heard anything from the company.
The flaw affects iOS versions 10.0 to 11.2.5 beta 5. Once enabled, they should enter the offending domain, in this case "GitHub.io", to the "Never Allow" list. At that point, Apple had issued a fix for the bug.
Apple has yet to respond to the bug, but give the severity, it could be addressed in a security update soon.
Considering Apple's software's bad time from the end of previous year, the company is expected to be more alert and responsive in 2018.
