That's hilarious! The following string will crash apple devices:

Bastard, I clicked the link on my iPad before reading the warning. I had to reset Safari to get it to work again.  Undecided

Done.

From what I read it will not allow memory access so there is no remote code execution possibility. So no virus for now.

Confirmed...Crashes Google chrome also on IPad.


the issue is with the WebKit browser engine, but it actually affects any browser or application that uses Apple's CoreText API

mysteryminer....thanks!  Too funny!!

At first I thought this was going to be the file:/// bug, but this is different one. Dammit Apple, why can't you write a working text renderer? It's not that hard! Well, actually it is kinda hard given the bajillions of character encoding systems out there, but it's not hard to write one that doesn't crash on certain text strings! What the fuck?

Just in case anybody is having difficulty accessing the website (I did earlier), here is the line of Arabic text that causes the crash: [mac font exploit]
