Malicious 'Text Bomb' Is Crashing People's Phones

A new bug has been discovered in Apple’s iOS software which causes iPhones to crash when sent an Indian character in a message. 

The character, from the Telugu language spoken by around 70m people in India, blocks access to the app displaying it – including Messages, Twitter, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger – and can cause the device to shut down. 

Attempting to restart the phone may cause it to bootloop, or attempt to restart continuously with no success.
