Beware of an odd script floating around that crashes iOS and Mac devices.

The link below is to the TechFeed YouTube video describing this script that's going around.

Regarding mobile, iOS 7 patches this bug. You can install GlyphPatch in Cydia if you're jailbroken and, for example, someone keeps texting you this script and crashing your messages app.

So pretty much sit and wait until iOS 7 is released ( for those of us who aren't jail broken anymore ). Glad it's only a week or so out, hopefully.

Yeah, but the odds of being affected by it are pretty low.

I've had several apps including my messaging app in the iPhone crash on its own but not due to this. I wouldn't have anyone in my contacts that would have a clue how to send this!
