iMessage hack lets you crash iPhones via text message


Pinoy Techie
iPhone and iPad users on iOS 8 to iOS 10.2.1 are vulnerable to the newly discovered iMessage attack, rebooting your device or quitting the messages app wont fix the issue. The exploit works by imploding your iMessage with a large file which overloads your cpu and crashes the iMessage app. Think of it as a zip file so compressed that it will take a lot of time to unpack only this time its alot more complicated.

How the exploit is done?
A contact will share to you a vcf file once you click this your messenger will freeze.

How to replicate?
  1. Download the VCF file here
  2. Upload it to iCloud, Google Drive or Dropbox
  3. Share the file by sending it to your victim via iMessage

How to fix?
Dont worry this one will be very straightforward and easy unless the file ist deleted, you can simply click this url which contains this code just in case:
       <script type="text/javascript">
         function message()
         location.href = "sms:@vincedes3&body=I have just saved your iPhone bro ;)"

         function reload() {

    setTimeout(function () {
           }, 100);
    <body >
function start() {
window.onload = start;
