Warning: A simple text message can crash iOS and macOS (BetaNews)

BetaNews: Warning: A simple text message can crash iOS and macOS. “The chaiOS bug, as it’s been dubbed, links to a page of code on GitHub. When the recipient clicks on the link, Apple’s Messages app freaks out, and ultimately crashes. Bugs like this are a nuisance rather than a genuine worry, and Apple does tend to roll out updates for such issues pretty quickly, so there’s a good chance it will be fixed in the near future.” I don’t think this has been weaponized, so it’s more of an “Oh boy this is annoying” issue than a security issue.
