Evil Prank for iOS 8 Users! (iDevice)
« on: June 03, 2015, 05:08 pm »
So today my friend was explaining that a friend of his had sent him a text that basically messed up his phone, and stopped him from being able to open the Messages application. I was very curious about this, so I did some research. It turns out that this is not the first time a text message exploit has been found within the iOS series, and today I will briefly explain how to do it! Also, this prank has gone under many names, "string of death" , "unicode of death" whatever you want to call it. I have found that there are two versions of this, one which will simply restart the users iDevice, and the other blocks them from accessing the Messages application. It's simple, all you need to do is send the user using and iDevice, on iOS 8, the following message(s):

The one below restarts the device, not sure about anything else:

effective.
Power
لُلُصّبُلُلصّبُررً ॣ ॣh ॣ ॣ


The one below blocks them from accessing their Messages application. There is a side-effect to this one, it actually blocks the sender from the Messages application. The fix for it is to send a photo to the user who you sent the code too. That is also how you fix it in total, by sending the person who sent you it a photo.

effective.
