Apple's feature for Indian customers to create 4000 jobs:

The security flaw was discovered by software developer Abraham Masri, who informed Apple of the bug before releasing details of it on Twitter. "My main objective was to reach out to Apple and say, 'Hey, you've been ignoring my bug reports.' I always report the bug before releasing something". Repeatedly. Your mobile device could even freeze for a few minutes, then respring, aka exit the app and send you back to the lock screen. Apple's response, apparently, was to get the code yanked from the internet, but that's, at best, a short-term solution. This unfortunate effect is the outcome of the app preloading the page with the code that causes the issue, crashing the app before you can even click the link. On clicking the link, iMessage will crash completely. According to BuzzFeed News, which first reported this issue, the system can crash without the user even clicking on the link or opening the message in question.

Text the link below, it will freeze the recipient's device, and possibly restart it.

Masri link takes you to a site that contains hundreds of thousands of unnecessary characters within its metadata. He tested chaiOS on an iPhone X and iPhone 5S, and said the bug affects iOS versions 10.0 through 11.2.5 beta 5.

It's official, Amazon's Echo speakers hit Australia in Feb
Customers can pre-order three devices now - Amazon Echo, Amazon Dot and Echo Plus - with shipping beginning in early February . Likewise, AGL said customers could check bill information using Alexa once it launching locally.

The chaiOS bug, as it's been dubbed, links to a page of code on GitHub. This renders the attack useless unless someone was to copy the code and post it on another platform to be disseminated again. Today, Apple let us know that a fix is on the way. On Thursday, Apple said a fix is coming in a software update next week.

Quickly delete the thread the link was sent in, if you can, before the app crashes.
