New Method of Killing Messages App Discovered [Video]



There’s a new hack that can break the Messages app on iOS 10. The vulnerability of the application has been discovered by an iOS and Windows developer nicknamed vincedes3.

To kill the Messages app, the developer sends the recipient a contact card that contains a large and complicated text. When the recipient tries to open it, the application freezes.
