WhatsApp: A new WhatsApp message being spread can not only crash the app but also your phone



SAN FRANCISCO: A bug is being relayed through messages that could not only crash the WhatsApp Android app while tapping, but might even crash the entire Android device, the media reported.

"As with any message bomb, sending and receiving a specially crafted message with hidden icons between spaces involves tapping on some of the text, the app will" expand "the hidden icons and possibly overload the app even the OS", SlashGear reported on Sunday.

Such news or "news bombs "are not new and not limited to Android. Even iMessage is not immune to bugs that could crash the app.

"It seems like two variants of this WhatsApp message are being relayed, one containing an ominous black dot that comes with a warning about what's going to happen when you tap what the strangest cats are going to do anyway," added the report added.

Another "news bomb" that crashes the messaging platform is "nefarious, looks too innocent" and contains no warning.

The message contains special characters that are not visible but are used to change the text behavior.

An unnecessary amount of these invisible icons causes WhatsApp to freeze.

Facebook owner WhatsApp has not yet commented on the potentially annoying bug.
