Fix For “chaiOS” Exploit Coming Next Week

I recently told you about the “chaiOS” exploit which causes an iOS or macOS device to crash. Apple has now confirmed that a fix is coming next week. That isn’t a surprise as I was unable to reproduce this in the latest iOS 11.2.5 beta. Thus it is safe to assume that the same fix is in macOS as well.

In the meantime, if you receive a weird link from friends, don’t click on it, as they could be pwning you with this bug. What will also help is that the link came from a webpage on GitHub. But it’s since been removed which will limit its spread.
