WARNING: DON'T VISIT THE LINK BELOW ON AN IPHONE
A colleague of mine, who works in the technology field, told me that there is a specific text string that can crash any iPhone (specifically iOS 6) which tries to display it.
He alleges that the string will crash Safari if it's on a web page. But of greater impact, if it is messaged to an iPhone it will cause the messaging app to crash every time it's opened.
He also sent me a link that is supposed to make iPhones crash.
The colleague who told me about this is a reasonably smart guy, with a degree in computer science specialising in security (among other things), so I consider him a trustworthy source.
Does this string in the above link crash iPhones?
