Radit users found a strange new bug in Apple's smart devices
Apple is proud of the high level of security and safety in its various products, but the truth is that they, too, are not free from problems, bugs and various breaches that may range from amusing curiosity to a problem with high potential for damage. Now you can add to everything we know even the 'Deadly Video', which can cause devices iPhone Stop running in a few seconds.
The new problem has been reported for the first time in a group designed for Dark In the Reddit network, noting that this is a standard video in the mp4 format that is played from the device memory (the effect is canceled when playing it Video Online viewing services such as YouTube Or Vimeo, so there's no need to worry about links to them) which seemingly manages to create some endless loop - which quickly eats up the dynamic memory of the device even after it stops playing, causing it to crash within seconds when the available volume is completely over.
In this situation, it seems that the only solution to restore the iPhone to usability is by performing a 'Hard Reset' by holding the Home button and the power button together for a few seconds.
Currently, many of the domains hosting the problematic video appear to originate in Russia, although it is not certain that this is indicative of the identity of the person or people who found and exploited this surprising logical bug. There is no evidence that the device crashes in any real way or allows any malicious access to your device's files or operating system - but these are things you probably shouldn't take unnecessary risks about, so we strongly recommend that you take caution.
The following is a documentation of the new bug action from The Verge.
So the next time you get a link to some video, from some anonymous source or even a friend - you better pause for a moment and check out exactly what it is, at least until Apple gives its official response and suggest some correction.
