Prank Website Appears to Cause Devices to Shut Down
Prank Website Appears to Cause Devices to Shut Down!!
Did you know about this?
If you didn’t, now’s as good a time to find out. You don’t want your operating system to crash, do you?
Nobody does. Except the hackers who make those.
What is IT?
If you’re scrolling around on your phones and see something spread around that is called either ‘Crash Safari‘ or ‘Crash Chrome’.
Then, DO NOT CLICK ON IT!!
Because, it’ll crash your device.
The malicious code will overheat an iPhone and cause it to reboot in about 20 seconds. It not only effects iPhone but also Android. It can lock up and heat up an Android phone, as well. So even if you don’t have an iPhone or use Safari, I would suggest not go to the ‘joke’ site.
What to DO?
For iPhone users, I will recommend clearing your History and Website Data from Settings. Plus turning off Safari Suggestions. As a final turn around this matter, switch to the Private mode when using Safari.
Now coming to Android and Chrome users, guys just clear your Browsing History and Clear all the Cache. in addition, to that, I’ll say do not install/add any external extension or plugin in your browser till this bug got fixed.
Is it Fixed?
Just a day after the website that crashes Safari made the rounds on social media, Apple has already issued a fix according to BuzzFeed News. As per our resources, some of the users tried loading the page that crashes the browser, and it looks like the issue is fixed. At least on OS X. But it’s still mystery for Android and Chrome users.
I would suggest- stay aware of these malicious threats and if you don’t know how. Then feel free to write back to us. We’ll help you and assist you accordingly.
